Health data is used to assess, measure and describe health and wellbeing, as well as health risks, health needs and health outcomes for the population of the Isle of Man. We do this by collecting, analysing and interpreting health-related data into meaningful information.
This is used to indicate areas of health and wellbeing where the Isle of Man could improve. Health Intelligence informs action and enables the monitoring and evaluation of outcomes.
Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF)
The PHOF dataset includes information on a range of indicators of health and wellbeing, the methodology used is based on that used by Public Health England (PHE) which allows the Island to compare data with England and specific local authorities.
This report is the first of its kind to capture a range of data showing trends and causes of death over more than a decade, and will be updated annually. The Isle of Man benchmarks itself against official mortality figures for England and Wales and Jersey.
Health and Lifestyle Surveys
We have a rolling programme of health and lifestyle surveys to ensure that we have up to date information on the main risk factors in our population (weight, physical activity, smoking, alcohol and drug misuse, etc.). Every year we also focus on different additional topics. These topics are chosen because the information gained from the survey will feed directly into service planning.
