Interactive data visualisations – NatCen

The Health Survey for England is carried out annually by NatCen, an independent social research agency, gathering information on the health of the English population. Every year the survey provides data on core topics such as general health, diet and alcohol consumption. To make the findings more applicable and useful, it is increasingly important to allow users to explore and engage with key trends and notable stories about health indicators in new ways.

In the Survey’s 25th year, working with NHS Digital and NatCen, Soapbox created interactive charts around each of the seven major survey topics which allow users to directly interact with and explore individual data points and long-term trends. Each chart is independently embeddable – perfectly designed for sharing via email and social media. Following NHS Digital’s new branding we also created simple, clean icons to allow users to navigate between variables and topics.
