The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities publishes health indicators at regional and local authority level in the Public Health Outcomes Framework and other related profiles. These indicators include life expectancy, healthy life expectancy and disability-free life expectancy at birth and at 65 years old and within-area inequality in life expectancy at birth and 65 years old. This assists national and local government and health services to reduce health disparities.
