Glasgow has had the highest admission rates and remains among the highest despite recent reductions, as the rates for most other Clyde Valley local authorities have also fallen. However, in Inverclyde reductions in the admission rates have been less than in the other local authorities and, as a result, the emergency admission rates after assault in Inverclyde have become the highest in the Glasgow and Clyde Valley region since 2010/2011.


Scottish Morbidity Records for acute inpatient stays (SMR01) have been used here to calculate the rate of admission of persons of 24 years or less to hospital following an assault (ICD10 codes in any of six diagnostic positions X85-Y09). The data was based on discharges from completed hospital stays and have been aggregated into rolling groups of three fiscal years to produce annual averages, as annual numbers are small or liable to fluctuation

Both Glasgow specific analyses and the analysis of Clyde Valley local authority were undertaken locally; the analysis by selected Scottish Cities has been provided by the Information Statistics Division (ISD). The figures are a subset of data from the annual ISD report Unintentional Injuries, Year Ending 31st March 2015 (published 08/03/2016) details on data sources, methods and definitions can be found in this report.
