‘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.”

The Review followed the publication of the global Commission on Social Determinants of Health, also chaired by Sir Michael Marmot and published by the WHO. The CSDH advocated that national governments develop and implement strategies and policies suited to their particular national context aimed at improving health equity. The English review is a response to that recommendation and to the government’s commitment to reducing health inequalities in England.

The aim of the Review was to propose an evidence based strategy for reducing health inequalities from 2010. The strategy includes policies and interventions that address the social determinants of health inequalities.

The Review had four tasks:

(i) identify, for the health inequalities challenge facing England, the evidence most relevant to underpinning future policy and action

(ii) show how this evidence could be translated into practice

(iii) advise on possible objectives and measures, building on the experience of the current PSA target on infant mortality and life expectancy

(iv) publish a report of the review’s work that will contribute to the development of a post-2010 health inequalities strategy

It is anticipated that the Review will also have relevance for other countries developing strategies aimed at tackling health inequalities, following the recommendations of the CSDH.”
