This report provides information about the money spent on adult social care by Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) in England. It combines data from 152 CASSRs provided via the Personal Social Services Expenditure Return (PSS-EX1) and relates to the period 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012. The data are used by Central Government for public accountability, policy monitoring and national accounts, and by Local Authorities to assess their performance in relation to their peers.
Information within this report is based on the final data for 2011-12 and supersedes that contained within the provisional report published in November 2012.
**NB: The annex files 'Personal Social Services: Expenditure and Unit Costs - England, 2011-12: Annex - Final Council Level Unit Costs
' (.xls) and 'Final_Council_Level_Detailed_UnitCosts_2011_12' (.csv) associated with this report were updated on 5 February 2013 to correct a labelling issue which caused data for around 20 councils to be associated with the wrong council. Any copies of these files which were downloaded prior to 5 February 2013 should be replaced with the versions currently available. These data are also available via NASCIS at: http://nascis.ic.nhs.uk .
