Population

Historically, local authorities have always analysed data to determine their commissioning priorities based on the needs of the local population. This section exposes much of that data to allow anyone to interrogate and analyse it.

Population data in this section comes from the Office for National Statistics for ages 15 and above and from published external research. It is anticipated that data from local systems will be integrated in due course to provide additional local prevalence rates.
