Health scores in England partly recovered in 2021 following the first year of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic but remained below 2019 levels. For example, cancer screening attendance fell from 2020 to 2021, but some measures such as mental health improved.
Every local area in England has a health score for each year. The score is made up of measures in different categories, called domains and subdomains. These measures include mental and physical health, (such as feelings of anxiety and conditions such as diabetes), local unemployment, road safety, and behaviours like healthy eating.
In 2021, Harrogate had the highest Health Index score, and Blackpool had the lowest overall score.
About the data
The topics shown are selected based on rules pre-programmed by Office for National Statistics (ONS) staff, and the text is generated using semi-automated journalism.
This interactive tool is based on data from the Health Index. Since the information released in November 2022, some scores for the years 2015 to 2020 have been revised, as described in Health Index methods and development: 2015 to 2021 methodology. This means figures may not match the previous edition of this localised tool.
Please note there may appear to be small inconsistencies in the percentages in this article because of rounding.
