Summary 

The Health Survey for England (HSE) 2013 was the twenty-third in the series of annual surveys conducted in private households since 1994. The primary focus of the 20132 survey was social care, including details on tasks for which help was provided, patterns of care, payment, and aids and equipment used.

The questionnaire included modules on general health, alcohol consumption, smoking, and disability. The HSE 2013 included new modules covering eyesight, end of life care, shift work, average weekly alcohol consumption, wellbeing, and physical activity. The survey also provided the following objective measures of health: blood pressure, anthropometric measurements, and analysis of saliva and blood samples.

A total of 8,795 adults and 2,185 children were successfully interviewed, while nurse visits were conducted among 6,183 adults and 1,455 children.
