Population vulnerability across England

29 September 2020

Nuffield DPhil in Sociology Nicolò Cavalli works with coauthors from the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and from further afield to create an index to show which parts of England are more exposed to the effects of a pandemic.

Using their 15 measures of community-level vulnerability, they suggest areas of greatest risk in England.
