Service users who say they have control over their daily life

Performance is derived from the annual Adult Social Care Survey question 3a which is: ‘Which of the following statements best describes how much control you have over your daily life?’ The measure is defined by determining the percentage of all those responding either ‘I have as much control over my daily life as I want’ or “I have adequate control over my daily life”. These two responses have been chosen to focus the measure on those individuals achieving the best outcomes, identifying no or limited need in this area. The intention is that this will allow for better use in benchmarking.
