2013 Local Health Profiles

2013 Health ProfileThe 2013 version of the local Health Profiles have been published today and can be accessed at www.healthprofiles.info.

As in previous years, the profiles give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England.

They draw together information to present a picture of health in each local area in a user-friendly format. They are a valuable tool for local government, health services and partners in helping them to understand community needs, so that they can work to improve people’s health and reduce health inequalities.

Produced by Public Health England, health profiles are available as interactive maps and charts for each local authority in England and include:

  • An ‘at a glance’ summary description of people’s health in the area, which includes information on locally identified priorities.
  • Maps and charts showing how the health of the area compares to the national view and information on health inequalities within the local authority.
  • Charts presenting changes in health inequalities over a 10 year period, compared to rates for England.
  • A ‘spine chart’ health summary showing the difference in health between the area and the regional/England average for 32 indicators within five domains (our communities, children’s and young people’s health, adults’ health and lifestyle, diseases and poor health, and life expectancy and causes of death).
