Data

MEDMI contains a number of different environmental and health datasets, including the Met Office’s MIDAS, NCIC, AURN and stratospheric ozone databases, as well as data on infectious diseases from Public Health England’s Second Generation Surveillance System (SGSS) database. (Please note the Met Office’s data licence, which is attached.)

For further details on datasets, please look at details in the Data Library. It is hoped the data held by MEDMI will be added to over time.

MEDMI has demonstrated different ways of undertaking data-linkage, which are explained in the data-linkage section.

The project has also identified some of the complications and caveats that needed to be taken into account when undertaking data-linkage and when looking at linked data. Please see the section on caveats for interpreting data.
