The 2017 East Sussex Community Survey, September 2018

East Sussex Public Health commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out its 2017 Community Survey, gaining insights into residents’ perceptions across a range of measures, such as their views on the local area, levels of health and mental wellbeing and involvement in local communities. This survey follows on from the 2015 Community Survey, with the questionnaires being almost identical across the two studies.

This report summarises the key findings from the survey, comparing the results to the 2015 survey and also the 2008 Place Survey, where appropriate.

The 2017 health related behaviour survey of year 6 and year 10 pupils in East Sussex, May 2018

During the summer term of 2017, schools across East Sussex were supported by the Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) to undertake a health related behaviour survey commissioned by East Sussex Public Health.  Age-appropriate surveys were completed by 3,089 Year 10 pupils (14 and 15-year-olds) and 3,260 Year 6 pupils (10 and 11-year-olds) in East Sussex primary, secondary and special schools.  The Year 10 survey had taken place previously in 2004, 2007 and 2012, whilst the Year 6 survey took place for the first time in 2017.

The findings can help schools and wider partners to better understand the current health and wellbeing needs and assets of children and young people, including responses to robust and validated questions on a range of topics such as smoking, drugs, relationships and sex, diet, exercise, emotional wellbeing and safety.  Local district and borough summary reports are available for each year group, as well as summary reports for East Sussex.

Health and Lifestyle in East Sussex 1992-2011, January 2012

This report focuses on measuring health and wellbeing and the prevalence of unhealthy behaviours or lifestyles based on three population surveys undertaken over a twenty year period. Data has been analysed and presented at three different levels: East Sussex County Council, district/borough local authority and emerging Clinical Commissioning Groups.

This report also includes important new information. The 2011 survey included an attitudinal segmentation tool called Healthy Foundations. Healthy Foundations assigns people to categories (or segments) based on their views of their health and ability to change their health. Tailored behaviour change interventions can then be developed and targeted at particular segments to improve effectiveness and efficiency in changing behaviours.
