This section provides comprehensive healthcare data for the Lothians and covers topics of population, births, lifestyle issues and causes of death and illness. This information is provided in a graphical form that is intended to be user friendly.
New for this year we have also included a detailed breakdown of health data using an interactive mapping tool (Interactive Geographic Profiler). This simple to use tool allows you to explore the data to a more detailed level than the graphs provided. This level of detail, known as "Intermediate Geography", is the Scottish Executive's preferred method for reporting statistical data.
