Topic Covered in Local Surveys
General findings from the surveys on specific topics are also covered within other sections, for example, in General Health or in Smoking within Adults and Children and Young People.
There were slight differences in the survey questions asked over time, but the same main topics and questions were asked so that trends over time could be examined. The topics included self-reported health status, emotional wellbeing, and lifestyle and behaviours such as smoking, diet, alcohol consumption, physical activity and obesity. Questions on social capital were also included which examines feelings of safety when walking in the community, civic engagement, neighbourliness, social networks and social support.
