The new 2015 pdf profiles have been published today.
The interactive tool has also been updated.
"Health Profiles provide summary health information to support local authority members, officers and community partners to lead for health improvement"
Health Profiles is a programme to improve availability and accessibility for health and health-related information in England. The profiles give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. Health Profiles are produced annually.
Designed to help local government and health services make decisions and plans to improve local people's health and reduce health inequalities, the profiles present a set of health indicators that show how the area compares to the national average. The indicators are carefully selected each year to reflect important public health topics. For more information about the 2015 profiles data (including changes compared to the 2014 profiles) please see the Data page or read our FAQs.
Finding a profile
You can find the profile you want by the area name using a text search, or select it using a clickable geographical map. The latest profiles available are 2015 Local Authority and County profiles. (Please note that these show different data comparisons, as Counties are compared with other areas that have upper tier local government responsibility, and Districts are compared with other areas with lower tier responsibility.)
Health Profiles interactive
You can also access the Health Profiles information through our interactive tool (Fingertips) which provides colour-coded maps and comparison charts.
For more detailed information you can use the Local Health tool, which provides information for electoral wards as well as local authorities.
The Health Profiles website also provides links to other relevant tools and information - see our Links page.
