The latest available data on Personal Independence Payment (PIP) award review and change of circumstances clearances can be found in Table 2A within the “Data tables: PIP experimental statistics on planned award review and change of circumstance registrations and clearances to October 2019” published here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/personal-independence-payment-april-2013-to-october-2019

The latest available data (from the introduction of PIP in April 2013 to October 2019) on reassessments of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claimants to PIP at initial decision can be found on Stat-Xplore: https://stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/. The “PIP Clearances” table can be filtered on “Reassessment Indicator” to only include data for DLA to PIP reassessments.
