Measures from the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework, England - 2017-18

Open data


The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) 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 ASCOF in 2017-18. Data are provided at council, regional and national level for each outcome.

The 2017-18 ASCOF report gives a summary of the measures in the framework. The report is complemented by an interactive Power BI report, which allows users to explore the data further. The raw data used in the report are available in the accompanying csv file.

Please note: In 2017-18 a refined methodology was used to calculate measure 1J (Adjusted social care-related quality of life – Impact of Adult Social Care Services). In the 2017-18 time series annex, the 2016-17 figures have been recalculated using this updated methodology. The updated time series annex was issued on 13 November 2018.

Please note: Some data errors were identified for indicators 2A and 2C and the corrected data was issued 26 October 2018.
