Child obesity data from 2006/07 to 2014/15 are now available in an online child obesity local authority data tool from PHE.
The tool provides local authority level child data (underweight, healthy weight, obese, excess weight – overweight including obese) for Reception (aged 4–5yrs) and Year 6 (aged 10–11yrs).
The tool also presents trend data and enables easy comparison of local authority data, allowing users to compare regional neighbours and local authorities with similar characteristics. For the first time, the tool now includes inequality data (sex, deprivation and ethnic group).
