Early Years Profiles

The data and indicators on this page are no longer being updated. More recent data is available in the child and maternal health section on PHE’s Fingertips tool.

NHS England and the Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network have developed a health profile of public health outcomes relating to early years (children aged 0-5 years).

The Early Years Profiles are designed to help commissioners and providers of health visiting services to assess the priorities for and outcomes of the transformation of health visiting services in line with the Health visitor implementation plan 2011-15.

Using the profiles, you can see at a glance how your local area performs against key indicators. You can also compare the data with other local authorities and nationally. Baseline and trend information are provided where available.

Following extensive consultation, a guide has been produced to help you interpret the data presented in the Early Years Profiles and use it to develop evidence-based actions to improve outcomes for children and their families.

The Early Years Profiles are displayed in four views:

The following guide shows you how to use the tool and explains its various features.

If you need any further advice on using the Early Years Profiles or interpreting the information they provide, contact the Local Specialist working in your area.
