Regional Health Inequalities
The Northern Ireland Health & Social Care Inequalities Monitoring System (NIHSCIMS) collects data on a wide range of health measures for the purposes of comparing inequalities in health at a number of levels:
- Deprivation (see the Northern Ieland Multiple Deprivation Measures)
- Urban-rural classifications
These measures are collated at the regional level i.e. for Northern Ireland as a whole, as well at the sub-regional level.
The following indicators are monitored:
- Life and healthy life expectancy
- Premature and preventable mortality measures
- Hospital admission rates (emergency, elective and day)
- Circulatory diseases admission, death, and prescription rates
- Respiratory diseases admission and death rates
- Cancer incidence and death rates
- Alcohol, smoking and drugs admission and death rates
- Mental health (self harm) admission, suicide and prescription rates
- Public safety (fire and ambulance response times)
- Pregnancy and early years (infant mortality, teenage pregnancy, low birth weights, etc)
- Childhood obesity and dental registration
An analysis of mortality patterns of Section 75 groupings also forms a part of the inequalities monitoring.
