The Segment Tool (life expectancy gap tool)

This tool provides information on the causes of death and age groups that are driving inequalities in life expectancy at local area level. Targeting the causes of death which contribute most to the life expectancy gap should have the biggest impact on reducing inequalities.

The tool provides data tables and charts showing the breakdown of the life expectancy gap in 2015-17 for two comparisons:

  1. England - The gap between each local authority/region as a whole and England as a whole.
  2. Within area - The gap between the most deprived quintile of each area (local authority/region/England) and the least deprived quintile of the area.

Geography: Upper and Lower Tier Local Authorities in England
