A health & well-being survey was undertaken amongst adults (aged 16+) resident in Herefordshire in 2011. Various reports of the results are published in the resource box below.
The aim of the survey was to provide comprehensive health-related lifestyle data, including in areas of specific strategic interest, for the general population of Herefordshire, for the purposes of strategic planning and resource allocation.
The survey specifically looked at health service use, medicines, illnesses and other health problems, general health & well-being (physical and mental), smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, exercise, carers, and socio-demographic profile (qualifications, employment etc).
It was modelled on the Welsh Health Survey and the survey consisted of a short household interview and an individual self-completion questionnaire.
The survey was undertaken on behalf of NHS Herefordshire and Herefordshire Council by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), one of Britain's leading centres for independent social research.
