Noun_Data_1997692-450crop-125x125-PData by topic

Southampton Data Observatory brings together data from key stakeholders across Southampton and Hampshire and, combined with nationally published data, makes it accessible to professionals, businesses, the voluntary sector, citizens and communities. This page draws together all of the data resources underpinning the Southampton Single Needs Assessment, organised by topic to make access to the information as easy as possible. Local excel based data compendiums and tools are available to download alongside links to useful nationally published datasets and data visualisation tools. Updates are added regularly as new data becomes available.

Within the local data compendiums, Southampton has been benchmarked against England and it's peer local authorities. Where appropriate, data is also presented for localities and wards in Southampton to highlight any inequalities that may exist within the city and to help the targeting of services. Finally, wherever possible, trend data for Southampton and England is presented allowing changes to be tracked over time. All data compendiums include full metadata, including data sources and time periods.

Datasets are available to download below organised alphabetically by topic. Other resources can also be downloaded from the presentation slide sets page and maps page.

Census 2021

The census is a survey that takes place every 10 years. It gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales.

Information from the census helps the government and local authorities to plan and fund local services, such as education, doctors’ surgeries and roads. The first results of the 2021 Census are due in the summer of 2022.

Health inequalities

Health inequalities are differences in outcomes between groups of people due to social, geographical, biological or other factors. One of the main methods of measuring health inequalities is by comparing the gap in outcomes between people living in the most and least deprived neighbourhoods in the city, with outcomes typically poorer for those living in the most deprived areas. This allows the inequality gap to be monitored over time to identify if progress is being made to narrow inequalities within the city. The inequality gap can be expressed as the percentage difference or the factor difference in health related indicators between those living in the most deprived and the least deprived areas. The health inequalities data compendium below contains a range of data exploring differences in outcomes by deprivation quintile.
