Bolton JSNA Indicator Sheet: Stroke Mortality


This is the Stroke JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Mortality section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.



  • Mortality from stroke in Bolton is currently higher than both the regional and national averages - almost 40% higher than England for Bolton men and 20% higher for Bolton women;
  • Mortality from stroke is reducing locally, regionally, and nationally for both sexes;
  • In some parts of Bolton the mortality rate from stroke is more than double that seen nationally;
  • Mortality is greatest in the more deprived areas around the Town Centre, but the distribution does not match deprivation as closely as CVD as a whole and the inequality gap shows minor reductions;
  • Bolton is above average for its peer group.
