Fingertips is a large public health data collection. The data is organised into themed profiles, showing an overview of indicators for each theme.

About Fingertips profiles

Fingertips profiles are a rich source of indicators across a range of health and wellbeing themes. They are designed to support Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and commissioning to improve health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities. With these profiles you can:

  • browse indicators at different geographical levels
  • benchmark against the regional or England average
  • export data to use locally

These profiles have been developed by the Office for Health Improvement & Disparities
