ISD Equality Evidence Finder

This evidence finder gives information about the availability and use of equality data from key national administrative health datasets. It is intended to complement the broader Scottish Government Equality Evidence Finder.

This evidence finder has been produced alongside the ISD Report on Measuring Use of Health Services by Equality Group Download PDF file [2mb], which gives background, context and developments around the collection and use of equality data by ISD.

The grid below summarises what information is available from national administrative health datasets. Please click on the dataset name on the left hand side to find out more about what equality data and evidence are available for each type of activity.
