The NCMP Local Authority Profile online data tool has been updated.
This annual update adds data for the 2016 to 2017 academic year. It also includes:
- a new ‘severe obesity’ indicator, not reported on separately before
- new trend data for boys and girls in England showing obesity prevalence and excess weight prevalence
The NCMP tool displays prevalence of obesity, overweight, healthy weight and underweight at local, regional and national level over time; for children in Reception (aged 4 to 5 years) and Year 6 (aged 10 to 11 years).
Users can compare local authority (LA) data by region or between ‘CIPFA nearest neighbours’ (LAs with similar characteristics).
The tool also presents inequalities in obesity prevalence by sex, deprivation quintile and ethnic group by LA.
