The nearest neighbours model allows you to see statistically similar areas to a chosen area; based on a range of health, social and economic indicators.
Data is collated for the most recent available full year and normalised (all metrics transformed to have μ = 0, σ = 1).
Missing values are imputed with the group mean (0).
Euclidean distances between all CCG pairs are calculated and the nearest 15 to the selected CCG are returned.
Euclidian distance between two n dimensional points p, q:
