Marmot Indicators 2015

Fair Society, Healthy Lives, The Marmot Review of health inequalities in England, was published in 2010. The review set out the key areas that needed to be improved to make a significant impact in reducing health inequalities. 

In February 2011, the first Marmot Indicators for local authorities were released, providing information to support monitoring of the overall strategic direction in reducing health inequalities. These indicators were updated in 2012 and 2014

Launched by the Institute of Health Equity, the Marmot Indicators 2015 are a new set of indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality, that broadly correspond to the six policy recommendations proposed in Fair Society, Healthy Lives:

  1. Give every child the best start in life
  2. Enable all children, young people and adults to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives
  3. Create fair employment and good work for all
  4. Ensure healthy standard of living for all
  5. Create and develop healthy and sustainable places and communities
  6.  Strengthen the role and impact of ill health prevention
