Local Tobacco Control Profiles for England

The Local Tobacco Control Profiles for England provides a snapshot of the extent of tobacco use, tobacco related harm, and measures being taken to reduce this harm at a local level. These profiles have been designed to help local government and health services to assess the effect of tobacco use on their local populations. They will inform commissioning and planning decisions to tackle tobacco use and improve the health of local communities.

The tool allows you to compare your local authority against other local authorities in the region and benchmark your local authority against the England or regional average.

What’s new in the tool in July 2018?

  • new smoking prevalence data for 2017 and revised confidence intervals for the entire time series
  • a new indicator measuring the gap between smoking prevalence in routine and manual and other occupations
  • new data for lung and oral cancer registrations (2014-16) and revisions based on new ONS mid-year populations, plus new indicator for oesophageal cancer registrations
  • updated data for smoking related fires and fatalities caused by them for 2016 to 2017
  • new at-a-glance reports for local authorities, regions and England (see download tab)
