The Local Health tool uses mapping software to present data for middle super output areas (MSOAs), electoral wards, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local authorities, and England as a whole.
It contains indicators related to:
- population and demographic factors
- wider determinants of health
- health outcomes
The tool allows users to map data and provides spine charts and reports for small areas. Users can also define their own geographic areas, such as local neighbourhoods, and add their own data.
Using the small area data, Local Health can calculate the values for the larger geographic areas, such as regions, parliamentary constituencies, combined authorities and county electoral divisions.
Local Health is now also available on PHE Fingertips.
