The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment provides information about Oxfordshire’s population and the factors affecting health, wellbeing, and social care needs. It brings together information from different sources and partners to create a shared evidence base, which supports service planning, decision-making, and delivery.
The 2019 report, which was presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board on 14 March 2019, focuses on headline facts uncovered by the most recent analysis of the data.
Chapter 3 provides data on residents in selected population groups in Oxfordshire including “protected characteristics” as defined under the Equality Act of 2010.
This chapter of the JSNA is in the format of a series of factsheets giving the latest data – some of which is still from the Census 2011 survey.
In some cases (disability, sexual orientation) estimates for Oxfordshire are provided based on national survey findings.
