Key results from the East of England Lifestyle Survey 2008 and 2009
The first of two East of England lifestyle surveys was conducted in October--December 2008. 26,290 people aged 16+ were interviewed by telephone. The sample was sufficiently large to provide prevalence estimates for key lifestyle variables at PCT level and was designed to enable comparisons to be made between the most deprived fifth of MSOAs in each PCT with the rest of the PCT population.
A second survey was conducted in October--December 2009; 17,637 people aged 16+ were interviewed by telephone.
The questionnaire included questions about:
- Age, sex, ethnicity and socioeconomic status
- General health and long term limiting illness/disability
- Smoking status
- Smoking quit attempts
- Alcohol consumption
- Self-reported height and weight
- Physical activity
