  1. Mean income score: % of patients receiving state benefits on the basis of low income. The higher the reported score, the more income deprived the practice population is.
  2. Mean LLTI score: age-sex standardised ratio for limiting long-term illness. The higher the ratio, the greater the level of ill-health in the practice population.
