UK indices of multiple deprivation - a way to make comparisons across constituent countries easier
Each of the four constituent UK countries measures deprivation using a distinct index of multiple deprivation (IMD). Although not directly comparable, situations exist where comparison across the whole UK may be useful. We describe a method of creating a UK-wide IMD score, using employment and income domains of the individual country IMD scores, along with residual values from a regression of employment and income on the overall IMD. Using Scottish IMD as a baseline to generate an adjusted UK score, the absolute change in Welsh and English IMD scores was relatively small, but with a considerable change in ranking in Wales. The adjusted IMD score was higher than the actual IMD score for Northern Ireland although had minimal impact on ranking.

Health Statistics Quarterly - The effect of lengthening Life Expectancy on future pension and Long-Term Care expenditure in England, 2007 to 2032
The aim of this analysis is to examine the effect of different assumptions about future trends in life expectancy (LE) on the sustainability of the pensions and long-term care (LTC) systems. The context is the continuing debate in England about the reform of state pensions and the reform of the system for financing care and support. Macro and micro simulation models are used to make projections of future public expenditure on LTC services for older people and on state pensions and related benefits, making alternative assumptions on increases in future LE. The projections cover the period 2007 to 2032 and relate to England.
