A CDRC Indicators project. AHAH (the index of ‘Access to Health Assets and Hazards’) is a new multi-dimensional index developed by the CDRC for Great Britain measuring how ‘healthy’ neighbourhoods are. It is based on: accessibility to retail outlets (fast food outlets, pubs, off-licences, tobacconists, gambling outlets), accessibility to health services (GPs, hospitals, pharmacies, dentists, leisure services), and the quality of the physical environment (green space, air pollution). AHAH is produced for Lower Super Output Areas for England and Wales, and Data Zones for Scotland. It is free to download, and includes the overall index and each of the individual inputs as well providing a fully open and unique data resource for health researchers.

Measurement data and deciles for the overall index, 3 domains and 14 inputs.
