This joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) focuses on working-age adults in Lancashire, looking at the factors that can influence the health and wellbeing of this group. It provides analysis of the current and future needs for the working-age population (WAP) using a wide range of data and resources and complements the intelligence available for children and young people and older adults. The rise in the state pension age will change the demographic of the 'working-age population', but for the purposes of this JSNA, the focus is on those aged 16-64.
Where possible, all data and statistics are quoted for the 16-64 population, if this is not available the age range is clearly identified, and may incorporate younger and older ages. The data have been provided at the Lancashire-12 and district levels where possible, but for some datasets this is not always available. Please see the further analysis and data download box below where there is a link to the final WAP summary report, which provides recommendations for this population. The supplementary suite of documents provides additional intelligence around areas such as older working-age adults, flexible working, health, and lifestyle.
