All analyses for health indicators are based on data sourced from General Register Office, Hospital Inpatient System, Child Health System, Northern Ireland Cancer Registry, Business Services Organisation, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, Community Information Branch (DoH) and the Health Survey Northern Ireland.

A number of indicators in this report have been age standardised  to the 2013 European Standard Population (ESP) to remove the effects of differences in population structure across geographic areas and over time. Standardised rates allow the comparison of rates between populations with different age structures by relating them to a standard population.
