Abstract Public Health England (PHE) has a statutory duty to have due regard to reducing health inequalities, and a role in promoting equality and diversity. The Health Equity Dashboard has been developed to help monitor the fulfilment of this role, and in turn contribute to work towards a healthier, fairer society.The Health Equity Dashboard is a single page, at-a-glance document, presenting data for a set of 18 key indicators from the Public Health Outcomes Framework, organised into three themes: overarching health outcomes, PHE priority areas, and wider determinants of health.Using data science and statistical techniques, the dashboard displays, in a simple format, the direction of travel of each indicator for England as a whole, and whether inequalities have widened, narrowed, or not changed. Progress is monitored since the inception of PHE, although longer term trends are also available in a supplementary data pack. Inequality is monitored across a range of dimensions, including deprivation, ethnic group, age, sexual orientation, employment status, and socio-economic classification, dependent on data availability for each indicator. A number of measures are used to summarise inequality. These include simple range measures to measure inequality between two groups, the slope index of inequality to measure inequalities across the social gradient from most to least deprived, and mean deviation to measure inequalities for groups with no hierarchy, such as ethnic group. The dashboard is based on absolute measures of inequality, with relative measures included in the supplementary data pack to provide a more complete picture of progress.
