Health Profiles

The Health Profiles have been published annually for the last five years, the first set were published in 2006. They are produced by the Association of Public Health Observatories (APHO) on behalf of the Department of Health and are a collation of national and regional data. They provide a consistent, concise and balanced overview of a population’s health, making it easier to compare key health measures between different areas of England.
