The online Health Profiles data has been updated for August 2016.
The online Health Profiles are now being updated quarterly at the same time as the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF). The 4-page local authority PDF documents are updated annually and were last updated in July 2015. The PDFs will next be updated in September 2016.
The data are presented in an interactive tool that allows users to view them in a user-friendly format. The profiles provide a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. These profiles are intended to help local government and health services make plans to improve local people’s health and reduce health inequalities.
This quarterly update contains:
- revised data for 2 indicators
- indicator definitions changes and the removal and replacement of some indicators
These indicator changes follow the PHOF refresh in May 2016 and a recent consultation with users of the Health Profiles.
- 4 definition changes
- 3 new (replacement) indicators
- 4 removed indicators
