Healthy Lifestyle Behaviours

Range of modelled indicators of health lifestyle choices.

These estimates must be used with caution. They will almost certainly not mirror precisely any available measures from local studies or surveys (although research by NatCen and others have shown that they tend to be related).

1) Current smoking among adults (aged 16 or over). Current smokers were defined in the HSfE if the respondent reported that they were a 'current cigarette smoker'.

2) Binge drinking for adults (aged 16 or over). Adult respondents to the HSfE were defined to be binge drinkers if they reported that in the last week they had drunk 8 or more units of alcohol if they were a man, or 6 or more units of alcohol if they were a woman, on any one day or more.

3) Obesity among adults (aged 16 or over). Adult respondents to the HSfE were defined to be obese if they were recorded as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above.

4) Consumption of 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day among adults (aged 16 or over). They had reported that they had consumed 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables on the previous day

Modelled data for Obesity, Binge drinking, Smoking and Fruit and Vegetable consumption is available for MSOAs from the HNA website. Modelled sports participation data for LSOAs is also available from the same site.

Neighbourhood Statistics are also available from the Office for National Statistics here.
