Description:

The Welsh Health Survey is a self-completion postal survey using a sample of around 50,000 adults drawn from the Electoral Register. The survey covers Wales, with some results also available for heath and unitary authority areas. The survey includes questions about people's general health, specific illnesses for which they had been treated, their use of health services and satisfaction with the service provided, their self-perceived physical and mental well-being and questions about their lifestyle. In 1995, to be sure of getting enough people with a learning disability, there was a separate survey using a slightly modified questionnaire and a sample drawn directly from Social Services Departments' Client Record Systems. Following a feasibility study the National Centre for Social Research recommended that the Welsh Health Survey and the Health in Wales Survey be merged. A pilot study was carried out in July and the new survey began on 1 October 2003. This survey does not have a Northern Ireland Component.
