Welsh Health Survey 2015: Initial headline results

The Welsh Health Survey (WHS) provides unique information about the health and health-related lifestyle of people living in Wales. It covers a range of health-related issues including health status, lifestyle and health behaviours, and use of health services. A statistical release published June 1st contains some initial headline results from the 2015 Welsh Health Survey. For binge drinking and drinking above guidelines, there has been a steady decrease since 2008, when records started. Men are still more likely to binge drink (30%) and drink over guidelines (45%) than women (19% and 34% respectively). More detailed data will be published throughout the year in statistical bulletins and online tables.
