Health inequalities and the ‘hidden majority’ of adults with learning disabilities | Public health matters

"The official blog of Public Health England, providing insight and commentary on all aspects of public health, including health protection, health improvement, wellbeing, data and knowledge.


A number of recent studies have shown that a ‘hidden majority’ of adults identified in childhood as having a learning disability are not identified as such within adult heath or social care services. The studies analysed data from the Understanding Society survey, which follows the lives of 40,000 UK households to provide valuable evidence about 21st century life."

Heavy pollution is as 'bad for happiness as bereavement or divorce'

Heavy pollution is as 'bad for happiness as bereavement or divorce' | Research in the news using data in the UK Data Service Collection | Scoop.it
Living with heavy pollution caused by traffic can be as bad for your happiness as being widowed or divorced, new research suggests. Extremely high levels of nitrogen dioxide, largely emitted by diesel engines, can impact on life satisfaction in the same way as a bereavement or a break-up, according to the research paper.

The new study uses information from a large representative sample of around 4,000 10 to 15 year olds from the UK Household Longitudinal Study. The analysis of these data is designed to deal with important methodological issues, so as to get as close as possible to estimating a causal effect of social network use on wellbeing, rather than simply saying social networking is associated with poor wellbeing.

Unhappy holidays: When are children happiest? When at school, research suggests | The Economist

Unhappy holidays: When are children happiest? When at school, research suggests | The Economist | Research in the news using data in the UK Data Service Collection | Scoop.it

"English schoolchildren enjoy 13 weeks of holiday a year. To jaded office workers (and perhaps the Green Party—see article) that may sound ideal. Indeed, few children complain that they spend too much time away from exams, homework and the possibility of detention. Yet a new research paper* suggests that maybe they should: for children are happier when at school than during the holidays. The Easter break, which begins this week at many schools, is the gloomiest time of the year. The analysis looks at data from the UK Household Longitudinal Study, which has tracked the ups and downs of 40,000 households since 2009."

The analysis looks at data from Understanding Society, which has tracked the ups and downs of 40,000 households since 2009. As children are surveyed at different times of the year, Gundi Knies, the author, is able to compare their cheeriness across the calendar. She finds that younger children are happier than teenagers, and that teenage girls are moodier than teenage boys.
