Jenkins, L.M. and Hastie, C.L. and Palmer, Ann (2007) Kent 2005 Survey of Health and Lifestyle: Geographical Report. Centre for Health Services Studies, Canterbury: CHSS, University of Kent, 93 pp.
5800 adults responded to the Kent 2005 survey of health and lifestyle. This report provides the overall results, showing how a wide range of aspects of people's lives varied by their age, their gender, and the area where they lived. Results in this report have been standardised to the Kent population, by adjusting for variations in response across age, sex and local authority, thereby enabling Kentwide comparisons to be made. There are sections describing the responses to questions on demography, health, lifestyle, social cohesion, and physical activity among the working population, highlighting statistically significant differences from the Kent average when the responses are broken down by: - age and sex, - level of deprivation (using the 20% nationally most deprived, 60% intermediate and 20% least deprived areas based on the index of Multiple Deprivation 2004), - local authority, - PCT. The body of the report covers the main findings and detailed results are given in tables.
