About this project

Compute and graphically present the proportions of the population of England and Wales undergoing hip and knee arthroplasty. We will present the data temporally (monthly from April 2003 to date) and geographically (by NHS region) using data from the National Joint Registry (counts of completed operations) and the Office for National Statistics (regional population estimates). All data sources to be used this project are publicly available for download from the relevant authorities. The outputs will be novel in that they are not availablein other resources (e.g. registry data).

Deliverables

Presentation at an international conference for arthroplasty registries and will be submitted as an original research article to an appropriate, internationally important, peer-reviewed journal.
