The Environment and Health Atlas for England and Wales

A collection of maps illustrating geographical distributions of disease risk and environmental agents

The atlas provides interactive maps of geographical variations for a range of health conditions and environmental agents at a neighbourhood (small-area) scale in England and Wales.

These maps have been developed as a resource for the public, researchers and anyone working in public health and policy to better understand the geographic distribution of environmental agents and health conditions in England and Wales. The health condition maps show the relative risk so there must always be some wards above average and some wards below average. It is important to note that we are not making direct causal links between the mapped environmental agents and health conditions. The maps provide information about risks and concentrations for areas, but risks and exposures for individuals living in those areas may differ.
