Burden of Ill-Health

Local people can now expect to live longer. Between 1991 and 2012 in the Borough, male life expectancy at birth increased by 5 years, and female life expectancy by 3.9 years.

However, people in Rochdale Borough still live 2 years less than nationally, and within the Borough a person in the most deprived group might expect to live 10 years less than someone in the most affluent group. This is an unfair Health Inequality.

A large proportion of our early deaths are caused by heart disease, digestive disease (including liver cirrhosis) and lung disease (including lung cancer). These conditions are largely preventable through not smoking, drinking alcohol within recommended levels for health, maintaining a balanced diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy body weight. We can also identify and support people who are at risk from developing these conditions.

Please see below for our datasets, profiles and further resources related to the burden of ill-health and health inequalities.
