Public Health Outcomes Framework

The Public Health Outcomes Framework examines indicators that help us understand trends in public health.

This data tool currently presents data for available indicators at England and local authority levels, collated by Public Health England.

View the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) data tool.

The data is updated quarterly. Details of updates since May 2013 are published on this site. Previous Public Health Outcomes Framework data (published by the former Department of Health) are available on the UK Government Web Archive.

Review of PHOF indicators 2019 to 2022

The Public Health Outcomes Framework details all the indicators included in the policy document across 4 domains. This is reviewed every 3 years to ensure it remains fit for purpose and meets the needs of users.

Every 3 years we consult on changes to the indicators and publish a revised framework based on the findings.
