Sensitivity Analyses

Sensitivity analyses are modelling analyses which involve re-analysing data using different assumptions. They are generally undertaken where there is uncertainty relating to the underlying assumptions. If the same conclusions are reached with different assumptions, then this strengthens the overall analyses and provides more weight to the analyses.

The JSNA Toolkit includes some details of sensitivity analyses completed locally. There was a project involving Price Waterhouse Cooper and another involving a 'scenario generator' tool.

Predictive modelling with sensitivity analyses was undertaken to assess the effect of increasing the smoking cessation service to achieve life expectancy targets (achieving (historical) target for 2009-11) based on life expectancy for 2003-2005. The local analyses took into account the local prevalence of smoking and the number of people quitting smoking at four weeks through the local Stop Smoking Service. The reduction in the number of deaths required locally to meet the local life expectancy target was calculated. Sensitivity analyses were also undertaken. Further details are given within Hull JSNA Toolkit: Life Expectancy.

Support and Caring

Support for carers, support to live at home and numbers of new social support clients is given in the JSNA Toolkit.

The Projecting Older People Population Information (POPPI) System provides population projections for people aged 65+ years for 2011, 2015, 2020, 2025 and 2030. It provides estimates of the number of people aged 65+ years in Hull who are expected to be providing unpaid care to a partner, family member of other person, and the estimated numbers aged 65+ years who will require care themselves (at different levels of care). These estimates are available in Hull JSNA Toolkit: Older People.

The Adult Health and Lifestyle Survey 2011-12 asked about caring responsibilities which included details of who the person cared for, the time spend caring for that person or those persons, and the frequency and type of activity (such as helping the person wash, dress or feed themselves, giving medication, doing housework, helping with finances, preparing meals, going shopping for them and giving them lifts). The findings are summarised within the JSNA Toolkit, with more detailed information within the survey reports:

Adult Health and Lifestyle Survey 2011-12 Main Report (948 pages)
BME Health and Lifestyle Survey 2011-12 Main Report (183 pages)
Adult Health and Lifestyle Survey 2011-12 Questionnaire (32 pages)

The information is included within the JSNA Hull Atlas.

The Young People Health and Lifestyle Surveys 2008-09 and 2012 asked about caring responsibilities. In both surveys, young people were asked if they helped look after a disabled or ill mother, father, brother or sister, helped look after elderly grandparents or someone else. In the 2008-09 survey, young people were also asked about the length of time spend on a typical school day that they spent "caring (e.g. helping someone get washed or dressed)" and "helping (e.g. cooking, washing up)". The overall percentages looking after someone are summarised within Hull JSNA Toolkit: General Health, Disabilities, Caring and Use of Healthcare Services, with more detailed information within the survey reports:

Young People Health and Lifestyle Survey 2012 Main Report
Young People Health and Lifestyle Survey 2012 Questionnaire
Young People Health and Lifestyle Survey 2008-09 Main Report
Young People Health and Lifestyle Survey 2008-09 Questionnaire

The JSNA Toolkit also gives the number of carers receiving support or information as a percentage of the people receiving a community-based service.

There is also information in Hull JSNA Toolkit: Deprivation and Associated Measures on benefit claimants of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and Attendance Allowance (AA) which are for people who have a disability and as a result need help with personal care (care component) or getting around (mobility component) or both. The allowance is to help with the extra cost of personal care (for example, washing, dressing and bathing) or for supervision or getting around.

Survival from Cancer

One-year and five-year survival rates for all cancers combined, and most of the main cancers are given for the Humber and Yorkshire Coast Cancer Network within Hull JSNA Toolkit: All Cancers. The numbers of deaths for most cancers are too small for Hull, and survival rates are not routinely available. However, they are available on request, while five year relative survival rates for cases diagnosed up to 2001-2005 and one year survival rates for cases diagnosed up to 2005-2009 are available from the National Cancer Information Service for Hull for lung cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer.

Differences between cancer incidence, inpatient admissions and mortality were examined within the Cancer Equity Audit which found a difference by deprivation.

The Cancer Equity Audit conducted during the financial year 2005/2006 revealed that whilst premature cancer mortality was strongly associated with deprivation, incidence was less strongly associated and the relationship between incidence and mortality was not consistent among the deprivation quintiles. This suggested that survival rates are lower in the most deprived national quintile, and this is discussed in more detail within the Cancer Equity Audit.
