Prevention of Obesity Route Map Indicator Framework

The indicator framework has been informed by NHS Health Scotland's healthy weight outcomes logic model and by the Scottish Public Health Network's Route Map engagement process[1].

Indicators to monitor implementation and outcomes of the Route Map are wide-ranging, including top-line measures as well as interim indicators of progress. Short-term indicators are presented for uptake of healthy food choices and options for active travel. Intermediate and long-term indicators are used to measure the ultimate outcomes of the Route Map e.g. from behaviour changes in diet and physical activity to securing goals of healthy weight population and health improvements.

The focus of the indicator set is on national measures of progress, but the process of selecting indicators included consideration of measures which could indicate progress at local level.
