In this non-technical talk, we will present an introduction to Public Health England (PHE), the national executive agency for public health, with a focus on how PHE supports and promotes the use of information to improve population health. We will provide an overview of some of the data gathering by PHE and how it is used to inform routine surveillance of population health issues. We will explore some of the methods used to visualise population data including the PHE Fingertips data platform. We will also look at some of the recent developments in population health data including the development of reproducible analytical pipelines to support standardisation of high quality analytical approaches in everyday practice. Finally we will present a case study example of applied population health analytics to explore changes in health inequalities in an area over time.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Statistics Discussion Group (CSDG) series.
