From Office for Health Improvement and Disparities:
The COVID-19 Health Inequalities Monitoring in England (CHIME) tool brings together data relating to the direct impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) on factors such as mortality rates, hospital admissions, confirmed cases and vaccinations.
By presenting inequality breakdowns – including by age, sex, ethnic group, level of deprivation and region – the tool provides a single point of access to:
- show how inequalities have changed during the course of the pandemic and what the current cumulative picture is
- bring together data in one tool to enable users to access and use the intelligence more easily
- provide indicators with a consistent methodology across different data sets to facilitate understanding
- support users to identify and address inequalities within their areas, and identify priority areas for recovery
