Geographical areas to display

Choose specific geographical areas to generate estimates

Regions are the 9 main regions in England.

Local Authorities (LAs) are areas of local government areas.

Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs) were defined by the Office of National Statistics in 2004 and have been used since “to improve the reporting of small area statistics”.

You can select a LA from the drop-down menu or you can select a region and only the LAs from that region will appear in the LA drop-down.
Once you have selected a LA, the MSOAs in that LA will become available.
To compare different areas, click the ‘+ Choose region to compare’. You can compare up to 4 different areas.

Choose prevalence percentage or
population counts

Use these two options to see the results of the analysis as a percentage of the over 45 population in any given area, or in terms of the number of people.

Choose one or more conditions and risk factors.

Choose a risk factor category to examine prevalence in either percentage or number terms.

Percentages signify what percent of the population in a specific risk factor category have a given condition e.g. choosing London, hip osteoarthritis (total), and male would result in 7.65%. This means that out of the male population in London, 7.65% have hip osteoarthritis (total).

Numbers signify how many people in a specific risk factor category have a given condition e.g choosing London, hip osteoarthritis (total), and male would result in 98,058. This means that 98,058 people have hip osteoarthritis (total) who are male and live in London.

You can choose multiple conditions and risk factors to be displayed simultaneously. If you selected more than one area to compare, the counts or percentages for each condition and risk factor will be represented separately for each area.

You can view the value for each area either by hovering over the bars in the chart or by viewing the table below the chart.

Please note for very small values:

All values for percentages are rounded to within 2 decimal points. This means that values below 0.01% will be represented in the table and the bar tool-tip as 0.00%. Even though these values are very small, you may still be able to see them represented visually in the chart area.

All values for numbers of people are rounded to the nearest whole number both in the table and the bar tool-tip. However, on the chart, the most accurate figure will be represented.
