Long-term monitoring of health inequalities

A Ministerial Task Force on Health Inequalities led by the Minister for Public Health was established in 2007 to identify and prioritise practical actions to reduce the most significant and widening health inequalities in Scotland. This report series monitors a range of health indicators over time.


Update on the Long-term Monitoring of Health Inequalities report

The annual Long-term Monitoring of Health Inequalities report will not be published in March as usual this year. This is due to a delay in the publication of mid-year population estimates that are needed to calculate all measures in the report.

We are reviewing our reporting on health inequalities and will provide more information via scotstat in due course.
