Data sources

There is currently no national respiratory dataset that offers a holistic picture of respiratory health and that needs to change. 

The Taskforce is working to collect and collate data sets from across the respiratory sector. Many of these will come from other organisations including the NHS, DEFRA and the Office of National Statistics. We will also be conducting primary research to fill in some of the gaps. Please visit our Taskforce Data Tracker to see our analysis for each of the Taskforce recommendations to find out more or use this page to access the raw data sets. 

What this page tells you
