PsyMaptic Screenshots

On this page you can find screenshots of the PsyMaptic prediction tool. Once our methodology has undergone academic peer review we will make the tool freely available to the academic community.

1. PsyMaptic Overview Map

The map page contains prediction estimates (and intervals) for the estimated number of new cases of psychotic disorder per annum in each Local Authority District, having taken into account each region’s sociodemographic and socioenvironmental profile. Features of the software include the ability to zoom to the region of interest, select specific region’s for comparison, identify regions with high and low counts or incidence rates at-a-glance and view multiple different maps. These maps will include prediction data for people aged 16-35 years (the age range for Early Intervention in Psychosis Services [EIS]), 36-64 years or the full adult age range for psychotic disorder (16-64 years). For each age category, viewers can selected maps to display either the expected count of cases (raw) or expected incidence rates (cases per 100,000 people). Viewers will also be able to select maps separately for men and women, and by major ethnic group. Users will also be able to map the underlying population demographic and environmental data.

 

2. PsyMaptic Additional Data Analyses

Our PsyMaptic tool also allows users to view data in a variety of other ways, such as in the above screenshot of a bubble plot, showing the predicted incidence of psychotic disorder in each Local Authority District [LAD] plotted against population density, with bubble size indicating the size of the expected count of cases in each LAD.

 

3. Tabulated National Data

National summaries of the predicted counts, with prediction intervals, estimated from our PsyMaptic model will be freely available to the end-user, initially for England and Wales, by age group, sex and major ethnic group.

4. Downloadable datasets

National and Local Authority District [LAD] level prediction data from our PsyMaptic model will be freely available to download from this website after academic peer review for end-users. This will enable end users, including healthcare providers, commissioners and other stakeholders to use the data to facilitate effective mental health service planning in England & Wales.
