What the JSNA data profile is

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) Health and Wellbeing profile is an overview of the changing health and wellbeing needs in Bristol and a way to quickly find related data.

Since 2019 we have been focusing on a regularly updated Health and Wellbeing profile where each section is updated on a rolling basis as new data comes out.  

Because of COVID-19 we're running behind our original schedule so some data sections will be published a few months later than planned.  

When we catch up in 2021 all sections will be as up-to-date and relevant as possible. We'll still produce an annual summary report as well.

Details of the latest section updates are available in the pdf July/August 2022 bulletin (211 KB) .

If a section hasn't been updated yet you can refer to the pdf JSNA 2018 data profile (9.03 MB) .

We use:

Sections are updated as soon as new data becomes available to better:

  • show current challenges
  • reflect emerging priorities
  • identify new trends and challenges
