Health indicators in the european regions
 
   


 

      

Welcome to the Isare project website.


The Isare project was carried out on the initiative of the Fédération Nationale des Observatoires Régionaux de Santé (FNORS) within the framework of the Health Monitoring Programme from European Commission.

The first phase, Isare I (1999-2001), made it possible to identify for each country, the most appropriate sub-national level ("health region") for the exchange of health indicators within the European Union and to assess the extent of data availability at those levels.

The second phase, Isare II (2002-2004), made it possible to test the feasibility of collecting regional data in each European country. A database demonstrator, built to illustrate the interest of this work is presented on this website.

The third phase, Isare III (2005-2007), made it possible to extend the Isare I and II project to the new countries of the European Union and to develop the data base.

You can access the health database according to two modes of interrogation:

Indicators interrogation: in this mode you can select one of the 38 indicators of the base and obtain a table presenting its value in one, several or even the whole European "health regions".
   
Regional figures interrogation: you select a region then a category of indicators. You obtain a summary table presenting the values of the various indicators of the category but also the highest and lowest values of the indicators within the regions of the selected country and the whole regions of the EU.
You can also, optionally, select a criterion of proximity. In this case, the database selects the 20 closest regions for the selected criterion. Then, the summary table also presents, for each indicators of the category, the highest and lowest values observed in these 20 regions.

This site also allows you to access a summary of the Isare I and II reports and to download the full reports of these two studies. There will be soon the report of Isare III project.
