Welsh Health Survey

Series abstract

The current Welsh Health Survey (WHS) began in 2003 and collects information about the health of people living in Wales, the way they use health services, and the factors that can affect their health. It is commissioned by the Welsh Government. The current WHS replaces two previous study series: the previous WHS, conducted in 1995 and 1998, and the Health in Wales Survey which was conducted five times between 1985 and 1996.
