2014/15 Survey of 5 year old children

The report and associated tables present the results of standardised dental examinations of five-year-old children who attended mainstream, state-funded schools across England during the 2014/15 academic year. The report provides narrative, comment, summary and detailed analysis of the data, including comparison with previous surveys of five-year-olds. The tables provide details of number of children examined, along with estimates of dental decay prevalence and severity. Data and associated confidence intervals are presented at national, regional, public health centre, upper and lower-tier local authority level.
