UK Obesity Related Hospital Admissions By Age and Gender

$79 / year

This dataset consists of information on hospital admissions relating to being obese based on patient’s gender and age. Data is taken from the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) databank produced by NHS Digital.

Complexity

The association between obesity and increased risk of many serious diseases and mortality is well documented and has led to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) developing guidelines on identifying and treating obesity.

Three measures are presented for the number of obesity-related hospital admissions:
– NHS hospital finished admission episodes with a primary diagnosis of obesity (admissions directly attributed to obesity).
– NHS hospital finished admission episodes with a primary or secondary diagnosis of obesity (admissions where obesity was a factor).
– NHS hospital finished consultant episodes with a primary diagnosis of obesity, and a primary or secondary procedure for bariatric surgery (obesity-related bariatric surgery).

Admissions directly attributed to obesity: In 2015/16 there were 9,929 Finished Admission Episodes (FAEs) in NHS hospitals with a primary diagnosis of obesity. Around 3 in every 4 patients were female (74%).

Admissions where obesity was a factor: In 2015/16 there were 525 thousand admissions in NHS hospitals where obesity was recorded as the primary or secondary diagnosis. This is an increase of 19% on 2014/15. Around 2 in every 3 patients were female (67%).

Admissions by age group: For admissions directly attributed to obesity the majority of patients were aged between 35 and 64 (69%). For admissions where obesity was a factor, the age distribution was more uniform.
