An online tool that presents health data on populations in England has been updated with new indicators and an improved interface.
The tool, which includes indictors on both health outcomes and factors affecting health, has been demonstrated by Public Health England.
It allows users to see how the indicators vary across England by using maps at a local authority or level wards, including summary charts and more detailed reports to show how local results compare with the national average for each indicator.
