The number of appeals for PIP cleared at hearing where the appeal decision was in favour of the claimant can be found in Table SSCS.3 of the quarterly bulletin “Tribunals and gender recognition certificate statistics quarterly – October to December 2017”.

It is important to note that appeals figures in this data can relate to a number of processes in the claimant journey and not solely assessment decisions.
