    alpha beta slopes for disability and sex to be used for the UK small area disability calculations. The attached script contains the values, they are also replicated below "mobility": alpha_male = -0.35111117; alpha_female = -0.2969268; beta_male = 1.080914; beta_female = 1.093486; "sight": alpha_male = -1.461451; alpha_female = -1.290565; beta_male = 0.8534907; beta_female = 0.8893959; "hearing": alpha_m...

    Based on the merged and prepared HSE2000, HSE2001 and cut down census we can use R to estimate the size of the disabled population for any of the UK districts present in the population file (basically per council district). The script uses the R statistical programme, available from http://cran.r-project.org/, and is based on the Small Area Estimation work by Dr Alan Marshall available from http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/esds/data/ This is the script used inside the taverna workflow available at ht...

    Adds regression calculations to the dataset so that we can then estimate the disability prevalence. The script uses the R statistical programme, available from http://cran.r-project.org/, and is based on the Small Area Estimation work by Dr Alan Marshall available from http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/esds/data/ Each disability type will have different regression slope characteristics and should be calculated separately using the linked script regarding calculating linear regressions. This script only ...

    Calculates weighted counts of various disability indicators in the merged HSE2000 and 2001 dataset. Merges this with the cut down census population file. The script uses the R statistical programme, available from http://cran.r-project.org/, and is based on the Small Area Estimation work by Dr Alan Marshall available from http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/esds/data/
