Description:

The Inequalities Monitoring System (IMS) comprises a basket of indicators which are monitored over time to assess area differences in mortality, morbidity, utilisation of and access to health and social care services in Northern Ireland. Inequalities between the 20% most deprived areas and Northern Ireland as a whole are measured. Results for the most rural areas are also compared against Northern Ireland overall. This report is the second update of the Inequalities Monitoring System. Baseline results were presented in Chapter 8 of Equality and Inequalities in Health and Social care in Northern Ireland – A Statistical Overview (DHSSPS 2004) which focused on 2001/2002. The mortality, morbidity and utilisation data in this report are the latest available. The locations of services for the accessibility analysis have also been updated.
