The benenden National Health Report 2014
Welcome to the National Health Report 2014 from Benenden.
This study, of 4,000 adults across the UK, benchmarks the emotional and physical wellbeing of the nation by delving into their lifestyle habits, their perception of health and wellbeing and their views on the NHS.
It also scores the respondents via eight different health indicators, which we’ve then compared to established national health guidelines to measure how well people in the UK look after themselves. Those eight health indicators are: sleep; portions of fruit and vegetables eaten; water consumption; cardio exercise per week; muscle workouts per week; alcohol consumed per week; cigarettes smoked per day and finally Body Mass Index (BMI). From the data, we are able to gain a valuable insight into the way people around the UK live their lives and look after themselves. Not only are we able to map the results region-by-region, we have also brought the results to life by charting the health of the nation’s ‘Mr & Mrs Average’.
Benenden intends to carry out this health of the nation research annually, in order to measure how British people continue to look after their health and wellbeing. Over time the results of each study will enable us to build a detailed picture of the nation’s changing health demographic and how the population responds to established national health campaigns and any underlying trends across the eight health indicators.
