Introduction

This section presents data on factors related to the health and wellbeing of pregnant women, children and young people including child health profiles. It is maintained by the National Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network.

The National Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network is running a short feedback exercise to shape the 2018 Child Health Profiles.

We are currently reviewing the content to help us develop profiles which continue to provide the common core information users need. We are keen to hear from those who have used the profile and what priorities they would like to see them reflect next year. We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete this survey and tell us what information we should give to help you; by Friday 29 September.

Key child health indicators

Including the Child Health Profiles, these indicators are designed to help local authorities and health services improve the health and wellbeing of children and tackle health inequalities. Available for each upper-tier local authority and for each CCG in England.

By using these indicators local organisations can work in partnership to plan and commission evidence-based services based on local need. The profiles allow comparison between the outcomes in local populations with others in order to identify and learn from better performing areas.

Detailed information (metadata) about the data used in Child Health Profiles is presented in the Indicator Guide. Use this document to find out how each indicator was created, where the data comes from, and what the public health and policy rationale is. 

All indicators

These indicators form a comprehensive set of indicators for the health of pregnant women, children and young people. Use the compare indicators section to plot correlation between any two indicators. Please note that any correlation between the two indicators selected does not imply causation.
