There is no data broken down by area or region.

However, data published on 2 October 2017 shows that, nationally, 81% of new full service claims received their first payment in full and on time. Across the whole of Universal Credit 92% of all households received full payment on time, and 96% of Universal Credit claims received some payment on time. The published data can be found here.
