Mini-huddle: Understanding the ageing patterns of the population in NW London: A survival analysis
This mini-huddle series is a spin-off from the NHSEI analytical huddles, providing a platform to discuss data and analytics activity at national and local levels. Mini-huddles are deep dive sessions detailing a single analytical piece.

Understanding the ageing patterns of the population in NW London: A survival analysis
Recent analysis has found that demand for health and social care may not necessarily increase in line with an ageing population. Because older people may stay healthy for longer, or they may experience milder health conditions. The Health Economics Unit, with support from the REAL centre, investigated whether this was the case in North West London.
In this session we will cover:
- Theories on whether an ageing population leads to higher lifetime health and social care spending
- Introduction to Survival Analysis
- Methodology for the North West London analysis
- Results from our analysis
- Recommendations and caveats
We would recommend you have some basic analytical skills to understand the technical elements of this mini-huddle.
After this session, attendees will have a good understanding of survival analysis, recent literature and a case study on the use of survival analysis
