Description:

The Health Survey for England (HSE) is a series of annual surveys about the health of people living in England. Since 1994 the survey has been carried out by the Joint Health Surveys Unit of the National Centre for Social Research and the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, Royal Free and University College Medical School, London. The survey is sponsored by the Department of Health to provide better and more reliable information about various aspects of people’s health and to monitor selected health targets. The HSE began in 1991 and has been carried out annually since then. A number of core questions are included every year but each year’s survey also has a particular focus on a disease or condition or population group. Topics are brought back at appropriate intervals in order to monitor change. The survey combines questionnaire-based answers with physical measurements and the analysis of blood samples. Blood pressure, height and weight, smoking, drinking and general health are covered every year. This survey does not have a Northern Ireland Component.
