Local Tobacco Control Profiles for England
The Local Tobacco Control Profiles for England provides a snapshot of the extent of tobacco use, tobacco related harm, and measures being taken to reduce this harm at a local level. These profiles have been designed to help local government and health services to assess the effect of tobacco use on their local populations. They will inform commissioning and planning decisions to tackle tobacco use and improve the health of local communities.
The tool allows you to compare your local authority against other local authorities in the region and benchmark your local authority against the England average.
What’s new in the tool in 2013?
The tobacco control profiles are part of a series of products produced by the Public Health Observatories in England providing local data alongside national comparisons to support local health improvement.
All indicators updated, where new data available. There are some methodology changes for 2011/12. Please check indicator definitions for guidance.
