Category (Government Category List):
The health of people in the East Midlands is generally close to the average for England as a whole.
Health across the region is improving, people are living longer, and fewer people are dying early from the major killers such as heart disease, stroke and cancer.
However, there are large health inequalities within the East Midlands. For example, the health of people living in the more deprived areas is generally worse than those living in more affluent areas. Tackling and reducing these inequalities is a key priority for the region.
Lifestyle indicators are generally similar to the England average, 1 in 4 adults smoke, more than 1 in 6 binge drink and only 12% meet the recommended levels of physical activity. However, 1 in 4 adults are obese, which is higher than the national average.
The percentage of mothers smoking during pregnancy is high compared with the England average.
Overall, smoking kills more than 7,000 people in the East Midlands each year.
The rate of road injuries and deaths is higher than average, around 2,750 people die or are seriously injured on the region's roads each year.
The Health Strategy for the East Midlands, "Next Stage for Investment for Health" 2008, highlights as priorities high levels of smoking, high levels of obesity, high levels of harmful alcohol use and low levels of physical activity.
