Collection description

The Scottish Health Survey (SHeS) series was established as a result of the publication in 1993 of the Scotland's health: a challenge to us all (the Report of a Working Party to the Chief Medical Officer for Scotland). The first survey in the series, in 1995 (SN 3807) was commissioned by the then Scottish Office Department of Health. The second (SN 4379) and third (SN 5318) in the series were carried out in 1998 and 2003, respectively. From 2008-2011, the survey has been carried out continuously, with each year's data deposited separately. The Scottish Government Scottish Health Survey webpages contain further information about the series, including latest news and publications. The aims of the SHeS are to:•provide data about the nation's health •estimate the prevalence of particular health conditions •estimate the prevalence of risk factors associated with these conditions •examine differences between population subgroups; and between Scotland and England •contribute towards monitoring progress towards selected health targets; and •monitor trends in the population's health over time
