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 2018-19. Data are provided at council, regional and national level for each outcome.
The 2018-19 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.
Note: We have now been advised that due to technical issues experienced, the Short and Long Term Support (SALT) data for East Riding of Yorkshire does not represent their finalised position on permanent admissions.
September 2020 update: Following the change in SALT to identify service users who had previously been included with 12-week disregard or deferred payments, these service users are now able to be removed from the numerator calculation for ASCOF measure 2A (Long-term support needs met by admission to residential and nursing care homes, per 100,000 population) to avoid double counting. The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework handbook hasn’t as yet been updated to reflect the new definition but has been agreed with the Department of Health and Social Care. The updated definition for measure 2A has been added under the Resources heading below. The 2018-19 scores have been recalculated using this methodology and the files and PowerBI report updated to reflect the revised figures.
Please note: An error was found in the 2018-19 England, council type and regional data for indicator 3D2. The affected data files have been corrected in June 2021.
