This section of the website provides health and wellbeing profiles for Glasgow and for sectors and neighbourhoods within the city.  

There are two sets of profiles: a set that cover the whole population which were first published in 2014 and a set of children and young people's profiles which were published in December 2016.

Both sets of profiles include indicators of health and wellbeing at three geographic levels: Glasgow as a whole; three sub-sectors of the city (North East, North West and South Glasgow); and 56 neighbourhoods across the city. 

Accompanying and complementing the profiles, we have developed a set of evidence for action briefings that link to indicators in the profiles. These briefings will outline the relevance and importance of an issue (e.g. child poverty, access to green space) and provide examples of positive initiatives to address an issue or improve a situation. Currently we have nine evidence for action briefings but depending on the feedback we receive, we may extend the range of briefings that are provided. 

There is also an interactive tool which allows you to view an extended set of children’s indicators using interactive graphs and maps.

An evaluation of the children and young people's profiles and evidence for action briefings was undertaken in June 2017. The main findings of the evaluation are summarised in an evaluation report.
