This chapter focuses on the development and application of area methods to examine socio-economic differentials and their effects on health in the UK. Individual socio-economic variables and deprivation indices at area level have proven their value in allowing a socio-economic dimension to emerge from a range of routine databases over the past two decades. However, as social climate changes, it is likely that the constituent variables in the indices will require review.

Keywords:   deprivation, health, socio-economic status, indices, databases
