This publication contains data taken from the Adult Social Care Finance Return (ASC-FR) and Short and Long Term (SALT) collection to provide information regarding adult social care activity and finance on local authorities in England for 2017-18.
This is the fourth year of the SALT and ASC-FR collections, and the second year in which the adult social care activity and finance data have been brought together in an official statistics report.
Please note: On 25th October 2018, Table 4 from the Reference Data Tables - Net Current Expenditure was removed due to an issue in the conversion of cash terms to real terms figures. This was resolved and uploaded again on 30th October 2018. At the same time, data on admissions to long term nursing or residential care in T1 of the Reference Data Tables was also corrected.
