Children and Young People's Profile 2016 - Stakeholder Consultation Survey

Date: 27th July 2016
Category: Disability, Basic Health and Welfare

ScotPHO are conducting a review of the Children and Young People's Profile produced in 2010. The revised profile is intended to provide a balanced set of indicators relating to the health, wellbeing and broader social determinants of health for children and young people.

The profile will be of interest to all those who are working to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people. If you are involved in delivering services for children and young people then ScotPHO want to hear from you. The main purpose of this survey is to get an understanding of which indicators contributors would most like to see in the final profile.


The Scottish Public Health Observatory (ScotPHO) produces a number of different profiles relating to the health and wellbeing of the Scottish population. The profiles comprise a variety of indicators of health and the wider determinants of health. The profiles are designed to:

- Provide organisations and communities with up-to-date and locally-relevant public health intelligence.

- Highlight health and social inequalities.

- Show indicator trends.

- Provide local information for targeting resources and priority-setting.

- Develop knowledge of the complex nature of health and its determinants.

Profiles can be used to highlight the considerable variation seen in health and its determinants between areas in Scotland. They provide a snapshot overview in a geographical area and can provide further comparisons with Scotland, other areas and over time. They can be used to increase understanding of local health issues, highlight areas to target resource and to monitor change. The suite of profiles available from ScotPHO can be accessed through the ScotPHO Online Profiles Tool
