We have included on this page six Microsoft Power BI slides. Figure 1, Table 1 and Figure 3 are also found in the "Further analysis" document, but in the slides they are interactive. Table 1 can be sorted according to values in any column by clicking on the column header. In Figure 3 the values can be read off for the corresponding bars by pointing at the bars. Figures 2.a and 2.b are slightly different versions of the map which appears as Figure 2 in the "Further analysis" document. Because the data made available by the Department for Work and Pensions has been suppressed in some instances, the Lancashire-12 totals and district totals are slightly different. Had the county and district figures been merged into a single data source for the map there would have been a danger that the figures could be double-counted. The maps are interactive, and zooming is possible. In Figure 2.b the map can be filtered by each district in turn, or by multiple districts. Figure 4 shows the same information in pie chart form.

 The Department for Work and Pensions have produced an interactive map of their own.
