Health and wellbeing profiles for England 2014
Published by Public Health England these profiles bring together existing information into one place to provide a snapshot of health and wellbeing across each local authority in England. They contain data on a range of indicators for local populations such as the proportion of children in poverty, adult smoking rates, levels of child and adult obesity, hospital stays and early mortality rates. The profiles are designed to provide local government and health services with ‘conversation starters’ to highlight local issues and priorities, and discuss how to tackle these. They show potential problems and opportunities by making comparisons with other areas and with the national average.
