It is looking for feedback to support the development of a composite Health Index.
The Office for National Statistics has recently released a provisional, or 'beta' version of the Health Index, covering England at upper tier local authority level for the years 2015 to 2018. It has plans to develop this version of the Health Index into a finalised product and is keen to understand which aspects of the Beta version are the most useful, and how it can be improved. It welcomes feedback from anyone with an interest in health and health policy. In particular, it would like feedback from analysts working in government, local government, business and the third sector.
This consultation by the Office for National Statistics runs from 3 December 2020 until 3 March 2021.
