This project is the result of a collaborative effort between LSE DSI, LSE Cities, the Ordnance Survey (OS) and the National Health Service (NHS England Data & Analytics team). It has the objective of exploring the different dimensions necessary to improve the mapping of spatial health inequalities in England in an integrated manner. It seeks to examine the complexity of the system involving environmental determinants of health and their relationships with geography, behaviour, and socio-economic and health groups. Understanding how these elements contribute differently to defining conditions that impact the well-being of individuals.
Ultimately, this project aims to identify gaps in spatial data and suggest areas for improvement. By doing so, it seeks to provide valuable support to academics, practitioners, designers, and policy-makers in their respective fields.
