Abstract

The aim of this work is to help build a deeper understanding of Greater Glasgow’s health relative to that of regional areas in the Greater Glasgow area with different European behaviours and health measures in the Greater Glasgow areas with different European regions. Comparisons have been made with areas across England, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Wales, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain, Belgium and Germany. The extent to which differences were due to variation in socio-economic circumstances has been investigated. The findings have shown that in socio-economic terms, the available data suggest that Greater Glasgow was not markedly different from a number of the other European areas analysed.
