Description:

The Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Inequalities Monitoring System comprises a basket of indicators which are monitored over time to assess area differences in morbidity, utilisation of and access to health and social care services in Northern Ireland. Inequalities between the 20% most deprived areas (defined using 2005 Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure (NISRA)) and Northern Ireland as a whole are measured. Results for the most rural areas in Northern Ireland are also compared against Northern Ireland overall. An analysis of the equality profile (Section 75 characteristics) of the areas with the worst morbidity/utilisation outcomes and also the areas with the worst access to health and social care services is also included.
