Explore the latest data on outcomes for adults using local authority funded care and support in your area, including carers.
These pages show data about adult social care in local authorities around the country. The 'outcome measures' are from the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) 2014-15 (final release).
An 'outcome' is the end result for an adult who has used a local authority funded social care and support service. This could be receiving financial support, being admitted to a care home, or finding information on services.
The data were published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre in October 2015.
You can find further information about ASCOF, including a detailed definition of each of the outcome measures, in the ASCOF handbook of definitions 2014-15.
Comparable local authorities are chosen using the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) Nearest Neighbour Model. This model finds similarities between authorities based on a range of social and economic indicators such as employment. More information about the Nearest Neighbour Model is on the CIPFA website.
You can access all the data, the full report, and England-level time-series data, at the 2014-15 ASCOF pages on HSCIC website.
Appendix B of the Official Statistics report contains information about data quality assurance, and explains why data for some local authorities are missing.
For several measures, the data can be broken down by gender and / or age group. Where available, you can find the data in the Official Statistics report or its annexes. Data is also available at regional level for all measures.
