Geographic Variations in Health (DS No.16)This product is designated as National Statistics

This volume builds on the tradition of undertaking in-depth analyses of mortality by area in decennial supplements to annual statistical publications. It covers the 1990s and, for the first time, takes a broader view of health outcomes than are reflected by mortality alone. It includes reviews of variations in congenital anomalies, cancer incidence, adult and infant mortality, births, conceptions and abortions. Data are presented for the UK and constituent countries, regions, and local areas.
