Description

Self-assessed general health is a critical measure of the population's overall health status and a key marker of health inequalities. One of the Scottish Government's National Outcomes is the overall strategic objective for health: We live longer, healthier lives. This is supported by a number of National Indicators including 'improve self-assessed general health'.

The Scottish Survey Core Questions is an innovative project drawing together multiple household surveys to provide a large sample for subnational analysis. For more information on this source, see the SSCQ website.

Confidentiality Policy

This dataset does not contain any sensitive or personal information.

Quality Management

Further information on the methodologies used to produce these statistics can be found in the technical notes section of the SSCQ annual reports.

Accuracy and Reliability

SSCQ results are published with specific 95% confidence intervals, which account for the varying designs of constituent surveys. Confidence intervals provide a measure of the accuracy of point estimates, and should be considered when quoting statistics from this source. More information is provided in the SSCQ annual report.

Coherence and Comparability

The preferred source of statistics for time series at Scotland level is the Scottish Health Survey. Comparisons of results between SSCQ and the SHeS and with the census collection are provided in the SSCQ annual report. By pooling three surveys, SSCQ provides results at sub-national level that are often impossible with a smaller sample.

Results from the survey are presented here for Electoral Wards using the 2007 to 2016 boundaries. These may not be comparable to other datasets which use the current Electoral Ward boundaries. Details on live and archived geographies can be found in the Standard Geography Code Register.

Accessibility and Clarity

In addition to the data presented here, SSCQ reports, documentation and tables for download are available on the SSCQ webpages of the Scottish Government website

Relevance

The pooling of Core Questions results in an annual sample of around 20,000 respondents, providing unprecedented precision of estimates at national level. This sample size enables the detailed and reliable analysis of national indicators by protected equalities characteristics such as ethnic group, religion, country of birth, sexual orientation, age, and gender. Further variables are education level, economic activity, tenure, car access and household type. Multi-level analysis is available on request.

Timeliness and Punctuality

Results from the SSCQ are generally published a year or more after the conclusion of fieldwork period, and after results from the three constituent surveys are published.

Revisions

Revisions are dealt with in accordance with the Scottish Government Statistics Revisions Policy.
