Kirklees Health & Well-being


The infographic above presents a selection of health and wellbeing indicators across the life course, from birth to old age.

For a comprehensive picture of the health and wellbeing of the Kirklees population please visit the Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment (KJSA). This is produced on behalf of Kirklees Health and Wellbeing Board and is used to inform the commissioning strategies and plans of the council, CCGs and the local voluntary and community sector. It is updated with new data and intelligence on a regular basis. Alongside geographical and population summaries, the KJSA is split into four main themes: wider factors, Behaviours, People and life events, and conditions.

Some of the key population characteristics and indicators that influence the health and well-being of the people of Kirklees are illustrated in the infographic below. Although around 440,000 people live in Kirklees, the infographic depicts how Kirklees would look if it was a village of just 1,000 people. The circle size broadly reflects the number of people in each group. An example is provided at the bottom of the infographic. A table summarising the data sources can be viewed here .
