Wider determinants of health

Information on the individual, social and environmental factors which influence the health of the population and impact on health inequalities.

This tool brings together available indicators at England and local authority level on the wider determinants of health, with links to further resources.

The Wider Determinants of Health tool is designed to:

  • draw attention to the broad range of individual, social and environmental factors which influence our health
  • provide the public health system with intelligence on the wider determinants of health to help improve population health and reduce health inequalities

Updates to the tool are pre-announced on the statistics release calendar.

The tool is an ongoing project which we will continue to develop over time.

Feedback on the tool can be sent to profilefeedback@phe.gov.uk.
