The tool provides local authority level child data (underweight, healthy weight, overweight, obesity and excess weight – overweight including obese) for Reception (aged 4–5yrs) and Year 6 (aged 10–11yrs).

The tool also presents trend data and enables easy comparison of local authority data, allowing users to compare regional neighbours and local authorities with similar characteristics. The tool includes inequality data for child obesity by local authority, for sex, deprivation and ethnic group.

The tool is available here NCMP Local Authority Profile and a short statistical commentary can be found here.
