Precision: It is important to note that the methodology for producing early estimates is slightly different to that of the published Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS) figures. The published WPLS figures are more accurate but take longer to produce because of ‘retrospection’. This allows the WPLS figures to reflect claim commencements and terminations which are entered on the system after the reference date.
