‘Two Years On’ Data – UCL Institute of Health Equity – 15 February 2012

“New figures out today (Wednesday 15th February) to mark the second anniversary of the release of the Marmot Review Fair Society, Healthy Lives show that while life expectancy improved for most of the 150 local authority areas in England that will take over responsibility for public health in April 2013, inequalities within these areas also increased.

The UCL Institute of Health Equity (previously known as the Marmot Review Team) commissioned the London Health Observatory to provide data showing key indicators for monitoring health inequalities and the social determinants of health for the 150 ‘upper tier’ local authorities in England.

The indicators at local authority level are: life expectancy at birth; children reaching a good level of development at age five; young people not in employment, education or training (NEET); and, percentage of people in households receiving means tested benefits. In addition there is an index showing the level of social inequalities within each local authority area for some of the indicators, including life expectancy at birth – the higher the value of the index the greater the inequality.

The full press release, including main results and figures, is available here.”
