The IFS Deaton Review of Inequalities: health inequalities

This report finds that there are marked differences in life expectancy between the regions of England, the countries in the UK, and the UK and other wealthy countries. It argues that the austerity measures enacted after the financial crisis of 2008 not only harmed many people directly and unequally, through reductions in public services, but may also have played a role in the anaemic reduction in mortality rates observed for adults after 2010. For policy to improve the health of those left behind to be properly implemented, more and better data is needed.
