Marmot Indicators

UCL’s Institute of Health Equity  publishes ‘Marmot Indicators’ inspired by the well known Marmot Review of 2010 (previously covered on this resource). These include economic, health and education indicators picked to represent the “social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality.”

These indicators are contrasted at local authority level with average scores from the 2015 Indices of Deprivation – check out the full article for indicators for all local authorities in England. The Institute also created a quick summary table to highlight the results of the five most and five least deprived local areas.

Finally in a related press release the Institution notes a few headline points:

  • The number of households in England unable to afford an acceptable standard of living has risen steadily from nearly a fifth (19.1%) in 2008/09 to nearly a quarter (24.4%) in 2012/131 .

  • There’s been an increase of almost 10% in the number of people in England reporting workrelated illness from 3,640 per 100,000 in 2011/12 to 4,000 per 100,000 in 2013/14. This increase reverses the positive downward trend seen since 2009/10.

  • There have been increases in the number of years people can expect to live both in ill-health or disabled. Inequalities continue to persist in both indicators and in life expectancy.
