Local morbidity rates of Global Burden of Disease and alcohol-related conditions

The Local Morbidity Rates of Global Burden of Disease and Alcohol-related Conditions is a dataset of England’s Middle Super Output Area (MSOA) level local age and sex-standardised morbidity rates for 27 categories of health conditions for the financial years 1999/2000 to 2013/2014. The 27 categories of health conditions refer to the International Classification of Diseases v.10 (ICD-10) codes recorded in the NHS Hospital Episode Statistics data (HES). This consists of the 20 level 1 diseases classified by WHO’s Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study and 7 level 1 alcohol-related conditions from the US. Clinical Classification System (CCS) and as defined by the Nuffield Trust.

The morbidity rates have been represented in the data as crude case counts of observed and expected cases and spatially smoothed Bayesian spatial structural models for each year. Morbidity rates in the data have been derived from in-patient local age and sex-standardised hospital admission rates provided by HES to contribute to studies of geographical health disparities. The reference population for data is the 2001 England population as recorded in the Census 2001. Lists of the included health conditions are in the data profile below.
