(click on graph to expand)

The rates of emergency admission following an assault are highest in Castlemilk, Greater Govan, Balornock & Barmulloch, Parkhead and Dalmarnock, Priesthill and Househillwood,and Springboig and Barlanark, all more than double the average Glasgow rate of 1.0 per 1,000 population.

There have been no emergency admissions due to assault from Kelvindale & Kelvinside in the last three years.The Anniesland, Jordanhill and Whiteinch admission rate was about one tenth of the Glasgow rate, while the rates in Pollokshields West, Hillhead and Woodlands, Yorkhill and Anderston, and Langside and Battlefield were all less than one fifth of the Glasgow rate


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. 

Figures for Glasgow by Deprivation and Glasgow by Neighbourhood are provided by Information Services, NHSGG&C and are produced using the same methodology as the ISD report (there may be small differences due to using data from live systems at different times)
