The Public Health Observatories (PHOs) in England have compiled a directory of public health intelligence tools that are available online.
The directory has been updated and now includes links to almost 200 tools produced by the PHOs. There are also links to some other key data sources.
Many of the tools present indicators on specific public health topics, such as obesity, alcohol, smoking, sexual health and mental health, and all are useful sources of public health information and evidence. They are particularly helpful for understanding the health and wellbeing of local populations, conducting needs assessments and commissioning.
The directory will be of use to a wide range of professionals, including; public health policy makers and practitioners in the NHS and local authorities; commissioners and providers of public health and healthcare services; and public health researchers and analysts.
