Population Outcome Dashboard

The dashboard below gives a snapshot view of progress for a selection of relevant population health and wellbeing indicators that are publicly available on factors that contribute to improved health and wellbeing outcomes for people. The measures chosen follow the principles of the Outcome Base Approach we use as an Integrated Care System. You can read more about Outcomes Based Approaches here: Outcome Based Approaches – Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System (

These measures are not comprehensive; there are many others measures that exist, but these provide a good cross section and show an overview. All of these measures are also quantitative in their nature, so it is important that they are considered alongside qualitative data and research evidence, and not seen as the full story.

As all of the indicators relate to different measures, for some of them we would consider an improvement to be a trend where the numbers increase and for others, a trend where the number decreases is an improvement, depending on the context of what is being measured. To help show at a glance whether things are going well or not we have added a colour code.


Red Shading

A trend that shows a declining position for that indicator

Green Shading

A trend that shows a improving position for that indicator

Yellow Shading

A trend that shows no statistically significant change for the better or worse

No Shading

No trend can be calculated based on the data available

Each of the indicators chosen has a link through to the original data source. That way if new data is available the link will show the latest data and remains up to date.

Below this dashboard is a section that describes what we mean by the terms used and provides answers to some questions about these data

Please note: Whilst these dashboards are updated monthly, the measures may not be the most recent available – there may have been a data update at source since the last dashboard update. Please click on the measure shown in the cells to ensure that it reflects the latest figure available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the figures in one Alliance area that is shaded red look better than those in a neighbouring area that is shaded green?

That is because what we are colour coding is whether the indicator for that area is improving or declining, not whether there is an indication of better outcomes than a neighbouring area or England as a whole.

Why are the colours in the dashboard boxes different to those on the dots in the graph when I click on the data link?

The colour of the dots on the graph in the data link relate to how that indicator compares to the England average and whether it is better or worse than that, whereas the dashboard boxes indicate whether that indicator is showing an improvement or a decline in each of our Alliance or Local Authority areas

Why do none of these measures tell me how well individual services, organisations, projects or interventions are performing?

Each partner organisation that delivers services that make a contribution to population outcomes also have their own selection of metrics that indicate whether they are doing the right things well, and show measures to evaluate how well actions, services or initiatives are working.

Why is the figure on the dashboard different to the most recent figure in the link?

Source data for indicators are not all updated at the same time and there is variation on when data are updated throughout the suite of indicators. The link will show you the latest available data, and it may be new data from when we last updated the dashboard. Whilst we endeavour to keep the dashboard display as up to date as possible, there is always a chance that new data has been released on the source since our last update.


Outcome – A condition of well-being for whole populations e.g.

Indicator – A measure which helps quantify the achievement of an outcome across the WHOLE POPULATION and give us an indication of whether we are collectively doing the right things – they DO NOT necessarily tell us how well individual services, organisations, projects or interventions are performing.

Performance Measure – A measure to evaluate how well an action, service or initiative delivered by SPECIFIC service providers / partnerships / programmes are working as opposed to the impact on whole populations

Benefit – Programmes of work that can make a contribution to improved health and wellbeing outcomes
