Proposed Geographic Classification for Health Maps- Version 2

 The major evolutionary steps between versions are:

Version 1 to Version 2

  • Recognition given to proximity to the health services provided in small urban areas but recognizing they are at a different level to those in medium urban areas.
  • The cut-off between R2 and R3 is reduced from 120 to 90 minutes. This increases the land size of R3. It also results in demographic changes in the make up of the R2 and R3 populations.
