Marmot Indicators 2014

Report abstract

Fair Society, Healthy Lives: The Marmot Review report was published in February 2010, presenting the recommendations of the Strategic Review of Health Inequalities in England post-2010.  In February 2011, the first Marmot Indicators for local authorities were released, providing information to support monitoring of the overall strategic direction in reducing health inequalities. These indicators were updated in 2012.  

Launched in September 2014 by the Institute of Health Equity, the Marmot Indicators 2014 were developed in collaboration with Public Health England. They are a new set of indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality, that broadly correspond to the policy recommendations proposed in Fair Society, Healthy Lives.

These 2014 indicators can be accessed below in a spine chart format, which displays data for the following:

- Healthy life expectancy at birth - males and females

- Life expectancy at birth - males and females

- Inequality in life expectancy at birth - males and females
