Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what his most recent assessment is of the (a) obesity and (b) smoking rate in each ward of the Peterborough city council area. (154067)

Estimated prevalence of obesity and smoking among adults aged 16 and over, along with associated confidence intervals are provided for the wards in the Peterborough local authority. These estimates are taken from the Synthetic Estimates of Healthy Lifestyle Behaviours and are published on the Neighbourhood Statistics website at:

www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk/dissemination/Download1.do

These estimates are for the combined years 2000-02 and are shown in table 1 and table 2.

1 It should be noted that the scores for comparing the synthetic estimate to the national estimate relate to the data as follows: 1=CI significantly below NE, 2=overlapping, 3=CI significantly above NE. The national estimate is derived directly from the Health Surveys for England 2000-02 (with associated confidence intervals) and therefore is not a model-based estimate.
