  • Quality of housing
  • Quality of the air we breathe
  • Smoking in pregnancy
  • Children age 5 of healthy weight
  • Hip fractures among older people
  • Premature death from key non communicable diseases
  • Deaths from injuries

In addition, all health board level data in the tool, including historical trend data, has been updated to reflect the health board boundary change which came into effect on the 1st April, where possible.

The Public Health Outcomes Framework aims to inspire and inform action to improve the health of the people living in Wales. Alongside the reporting tool, evidence statements to support the Public Health Outcomes Framework indicators are also available. These will be of use to Public Services Boards, Health Boards and Local Authorities to inform well-being plans and decision making. They may also be of interest to policy makers, the third sector and practitioners.
