Health Maps Wales is an interactive tool that can be used to explore a variety of indicators relating to the health of the Welsh population. Maps are embedded within dashboards, and these allow the user to to compare indicator values geographically and temporally. Indicators are available at Middle Super Output Area (MSOA), Upper Super Output Area (USOA) and Unitary Authority (UA) level, subject to rules of disclosure and small numbers. From the 25th February 2010, information will also be availble at the level of the 7 new NHS Wales Local Health Board areas. The categories of indicators currently available include hospital admissions (rates, length of stay and waiting times by major disease and procedure groups), cancer incidence, mortality (by cause), maternity and child health, and oral health.
