I may have mentioned this before, but when I was a Director of Public Health, our district had some of the best public health indicators in the whole country - bottom five for cardiovascular mortality, lowest for teenage pregnancy, and in one year zero child deaths on the roads. We were, of course, also one of the most affluent districts in England, which put our achievements in a somewhat different perspective. Wherever possible I tried to present our data against comparators from Scandinavia to show how far we could still go.
Here is a nice tool to play with. You can compare yourself against suitable comparators rather than potentially misleading national averages or league tables. That should now be standard practice.
