What is the report about?
The report analysed infection rates and hospital admission rates for COVID-19. A number of factors were explored:
- socio-economic deprivation;
- gender; and
- whether people lived in rural, urban or mixed rural/urban areas.
It discusses ’standardised’ rates – infection, admission and mortality – throughout. Standardisation makes adjustments to compensate for differences in population structure (such as age), so valid comparisons can be made between geographical areas. Data was collected up to 9am on 26 May 2020.
