The Child Health Profiles 2016, published today (15 March 2016) by PHE, present data across 32 key health indicators of child health and wellbeing. The data will help local organisations work in partnership to improve health in their local area.
The profiles provide a snapshot of children and young people’s health by local authority and CCG in England.
The data is updated annually. There is a 4 page profile for each local authority in England which includes:
- an ‘At a glance’ summary description of child health in the area which highlights key findings
- maps and charts showing how the health of the area compares to the national view and other local authorities in England
- a ‘spine chart’ health summary showing the difference in health between the area and the England average for 32 indicators within the 5 domains of the Public Health Outcomes Framework.
