The Public Health England (PHE) segment tool has been developed to help local authorities identify the causes of death which contribute most to the life expectancy gaps in their areas. The aim is to be able to better target interventions appropriately.
The charts and tables supplied are based on data from January 2009 to December 2011. The Segment Tool is provided in an Excel workbook including macros, which can be downloaded.
A summary report is available for each upper tier local authority.
