Healthy lifestyle behaviours

Added By Infochimps

This dataset provides ‘synthetic estimates’ and confidence intervals for a range of healthy lifestyle variables. The variables are: 1) Current smoking among adults (aged 16 or over). 2) Binge drinking for adults (aged 16 or over). 3) Obesity among adults (aged 16 or over). 4) Consumption of 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day among adults (aged 16 or over).

Geographic coverage: England

Time coverage: 2003-2005

Type of data: Modelled data

Guidelines: For reference purposes each MSOA/LA is compared to the direct (i.e. non model-based) estimate for England by examining whether its 95% confidence interval overlaps with the confidence interval for the Health Survey for England national estimate (NE). A score of 1 indicates that the MSOA/LA estimate is significantly lower than the national estimate; 2 implies no significant difference and 3 indicates an estimate that is significantly higher.

Precision: #95% confidence intervals have been produced for the prevalence of the healthy lifestyle indicators. The model-based estimate for a particular MSOA/LA is the expected prevalence of the outcome for that area based on its population characteristics (as measured by the census/administrative data) and as such does not represent an estimate of the actual prevalence for the MSOA/LA.#Model-based estimates have not been produced for either the City of London (00AA) or Isles of Scilly (15UH), as these were not covered by the survey data. These are denoted by ‘..’ (double dots) in the data.
