Mental Wellbeing ( WEMWBS) - adults aged 16 years and over
- Inequalities are stable in absolute and relative terms.
There is a clear difference in mean WEMWBS scores in terms of deprivation. Those in the most deprived decile reported a lower mean score (indicating lower mental wellbeing) than those in the highest decile (a difference of 4.5 between the lowest and highest deciles). The Relative Index of Inequality was 0.10, which has been consistent over the past three years
