STREAM - Stream provides statistics, research and mapping using nationally available data relating to North Yorkshire and York, together with local information from partner organisations. Data is taken from a variety of sources including the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

HEALTH PROFILES  - Health Profiles is the Department of Health's programme to improve availability and accessibility to heath and health-related information in England. They give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. Health Profiles are produced annually by the Public Health Observatories in England working in partnership and are commissioned by the Department of Health.

OFFICE FOR NATIONAL STATISTICS - The Office for National Statistics produces independent information to improve our understanding of the UK's economy and society. Reliable and impartial statistics are vital for planning the proper allocation of resources, policy-making and decision-making to ensure a fair society.

LOCAL ALCOHOL PROFILES FOR ENGLAND  (LAPE) - The profiles contain 25 alcohol-related indicators for every local authority (LA) and 22 for every primary care trust (PCT) in England. These indicators measure the impact of alcohol on local communities. As well as local area data on alcohol-related hospital admissions and alcohol-related crime, the profiles include new experimental data on levels of abstainers in each local authority and the proportion of drinkers who drink at lower, increasing and higher risk levels.

CHILD POVERTY FIGURES  - the figures shown here use tax credit data to give the percentage of children on low incomes in local authorities, parliamentary constituencies and wards across the United Kingdom. Based on how many families are out of work or on low working incomes, this is not a direct measure of exactly how many children are in poverty on the official definition, but is the closest measure we have of local levels of child poverty.
