PHE data and analysis tools
A single point of access to data and analysis tools from across Public Health England (previously known as the 'Data and knowledge gateway').
This resource is in development and will be added to over time, so please let us know if you do not find the information you need or if you would like to give feedback.
About this resource
What it does
Public Health England (PHE) provides many high quality data and analysis tools and resources for public health professionals. The PHE data and knowledge gateway provides direct access to these resources.
Who it is for
The resources help local government and health service professionals make decisions and plans to improve people’s health and reduce inequalities in their area. They can be used by anyone with an interest in understanding the health of the population and how it varies across the country.
Restricted access content
You don’t need to login to access most tools. However, some tools require eligible users to register and login, to protect certain types of data. Information about how to register will be available on the individual resource web page.
Types of content
The resources cover a wide range of public health areas, including:
- specific health conditions – such as cancer, mental health, cardiovascular disease
- lifestyle risk factors – such as smoking, alcohol and obesity
- wider determinants of health – such as environment, housing and deprivation
- health protection, and differences between population groups, including adults, older people, and children.
The tools were produced by organisations that are now part of PHE, including public health observatories, the Health Protection Agency, cancer registries, UK screening programmes and the National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse.
This resource links to the content on these former organisations’ websites. This will be added to over time to cover a wider range of tool types and topics.
Longer term, the plan is to bring all the data and analytical content from these websites together.
Use the help and guidance provided within each specific tool. If you have questions about a specific tool, please use the contact details on the website for that tool.
