Personal Social Services Adult Social Care Survey, England

2013-14, Final release

The Personal Social Services Adult Social Care Survey (ASCS) is an annual survey for England that took place for the fourth time in 2013-14. Service users were sent questionnaires, issued by Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs), in the period January to March 2014 to seek their opinions over a range of outcome areas.

The survey is designed to cover all service users aged 18 and over in receipt of services funded wholly or in part by Social Services during 2013-14. It seeks to learn more about how effectively services are helping service users to live safely and independently in their own homes, and the impact of services on their quality of life. The survey is also used to populate some of the measures in the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF)1.
This report supersedes the provisional report published in July 2014.

National level information is provided in this report. Data for all CASSRs in England are provided as an annex on the publication web page: The data are also available in CSV format.
