The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework measures how well care and support services achieve the outcomes that matter most to people. The ASCOF is used both locally and nationally to set priorities for care and support, measure progress and strengthen transparency and accountability.
This report focuses on the main findings for each measure in the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) in 2016-17. Data are provided at council, regional and national level for each outcome.
17/11/2017: Please note a revised 'Monthly 1F and 1H outcome measures' file has replaced the file originally published on 25/10/2017. Suppression and rounding rules applied to figures for eleven councils were found to be inconsistent with those for the rest of England and have subsequently been changed in order that they align with all other English council data
02/08/2018: A correction has been made to the monthly 1F and 1H outcome measures within this publication. This correction relates to Mental Health statistics, specifically: AMH14 - People aged 18-69 on CPA at the end of the reporting period in settled accommodation (adult mental health services), AMH15 - Proportion of people aged 18-69 on CPA at the end of the reporting period in settled accommodation (adult mental health services), AMH17 - People aged 18-69 on CPA (adult mental health services) at the end of the reporting period in employment and AMH18 - Proportion of people aged 18-69 on CPA (adult mental health services) at the end of the reporting period in employment. This has now been corrected and the monthly 1F and 1H outcome measure file has been reissued. NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
1A: Social care-related quality of life
- Younger adults (aged 18 to 64) reported a higher quality of life score (19.5) than those aged 65 and over (18.9), this difference is statistically significant.
- The overall Social Care-related quality of life score at England level was 19.1 out of a maximum score of 24.
- In 2016-17 a new measure has been introduced to look at the impact Adult Social Care services have on the social care-related quality of life score, this is ASCOF measure 1J.
1E: Proportion of adults with learning disabilities in paid employment
- The proportion of adults with a learning disability in paid employment varies across each region in England. London (7.2 per cent) and Eastern (7.1 per cent) have the highest proportion, North West, East Midlands and West Midlands have the lowest proportion of adults with a learning disability in paid employment at 4.2 per cent.
- The proportion of adults with learning disabilities in paid employment has fallen each year over the last three years, from 6.0 per cent in 2014-15 to 5.8 per cent in 2015-16 and then 5.7 per cent in 2016-17.
1I: Proportion of people who use services, and their carers, who reported that they had as much social contact as they would like
- A higher proportion of service users aged 18 to 64 reported having as much social contact as they would like (49.0 per cent) compared to those aged 65 and over (43.2 per cent). Unlike service users, a higher proportion of carers aged 65 and over (38.3 per cent) reported having as much social contact as they would like compared to carers aged 18 to 64 (32.3 per cent).
2C: Delayed transfers of care from hospital, and those which are attributable to social care or jointly to social care and the NHS, per 100,000 population
- At England level both delayed transfers of care from hospital (2C1), and those which are attributable to social care (2C2), per 100,000 population have risen each year from 2013-14 to 2016-17.
The ASCOF measures 1F and 1H which are based on the Mental Health data set have been suspended in 2016-17 due to the quality and completeness of the data and so are not included in the data sets below. The 1F and 1H outcomes have also not been included in the 2016-17 report, csv, disaggregated annex and time series annex file. The CASSR 1F and 1H scores have been made available in a separate annex file to enable CASSRs to see what their 2016-17 scores would have been (see Resources, below).
