State of child health report 2017

This report brings together data across 25 measures of child health in the UK, ranging from specific conditions, risk factors for poor health, to the rate of child deaths.

The data provides an across-the-board snapshot of child health and wellbeing in the UK. It finds that nearly one in five children in the UK are living in poverty and that those from the most deprived backgrounds experience much worse health compared with children from the most affluent backgrounds.
