Visualisation of data

Report that has diagrams

We showed how to use visualisation techniques to illustrate important social trends (cohort, period, and age) in death rates in Scotland and the USA, considerably enhancing visualisation of administrative data. We also developed novel visualisations to explore the temporal patterning of health events (e.g. GP consultations, ED presentations and deaths) around preventable hospitalisations based on linked 45 and Up cohort data. These clearly showed other events clustering around the time of the preventable hospitalisations when compared to matched controls.
