Marmot Indicators for Local Authorities in England

Fair Society, Healthy Lives: The Marmot Review report was published in February 2010. The report included some suggested indicators to support monitoring of the overall strategic direction in reducing health inequalities. In February 2011, the London Health Observatory produced baseline figures for some key indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality that correspond, as closely as is currently possible, to the indicators proposed in Fair Society, Healthy Lives.

The London Health Observatory and the UCL Institute of Health Equity (previously known as the Marmot Review Team) have now updated the indicators. The 2012 indicators are shown in spine chart format. The spine charts contain the following indicators:
 

  • Male and female life expectancy
  • Slope indices of inequality (SII) for male and female life expectancy
  • Slope indices of inequality (SII) for male and female disability-free life expectancy
  • Children achieving a good level of development at age 5
  • Young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET)
  • People in households in receipt of means-tested benefits
  • Slope index of inequality for people in households in receipt of means-tested benefits
