United Kingdom Health Statistics brings together an up-to-date collection of statistical information on the health of the population and health and care services, for the UK as a whole and for its four constituent countries. It allows comparison between the constituent countries of the UK of accessible, high quality data from a wide range of sources, both within government and outside. The topics covered include pregnancy and childbirth, general health and specific health conditions, mortality and life expectancy, and prevention and care resources and activities. The many tables based on up-to-date data are supplemented by spreadsheet files, giving the equivalent figures for past years, which can be downloaded from the National Statistics website. United Kingdom Health Statistics offers an invaluable resource for organisations in the health and care field, healthcare professionals and managers, students and many others, who require data on a common basis to facilitate comparisons between the constituent countries of the UK, or between the UK and other nation states.
