Public Health England have developed an online resource called “Health Profiles” which aims to improve the availability and accessibility of health and health-related information. The Profiles provide a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. They are intended to help local government and health services make plans to improve local people’s health and reduce health inequalities.
The data is grouped into five domains:
- Our communities
- Children’s and young people’s health
- Adults’ health and lifestyle
- Disease and poor health
- Life expectancy and causes of death.
As well as your selected local area, you also get to see neighboring authority data, regional data and national data, so you can compare. Select local authority area type ‘County & UA’ (upper tier) or ‘District and UA’ (lower tier) from the drop down box to view available indicators.
