Are you healthy?

This is a little dated now, but I came across this interesting article about the use of spatial data on health metrics from 2017:

It talks about some work completed by researchers at the University of Liverpool, and how they used new data sources pertaining to lifestyle and environmental measures to map ‘healthy’ and ‘unhealthy’ parts of the UK.

Unsurprisingly the worst places to live were in inner London whilst the healthiest places to live were in rural parts of the country.  There are some interesting statistics raised in the article linked to above, and an interactive map is available as well.
