Comparative analyses of diet-related health conditions in adults and children are presented in other sections of the JSNA – please see the ‘Adult health and illness’ and ‘Children and young people’ chapters.  Comparative analysis of dietary behaviours is presented in the ‘Lifestyle and behaviour’ chapter.

Hackney, like London in general, has a high density of fast-food takeaways in comparison to other areas of the UK, with the 10th highest density in London. 1 Figure 4 confirms that Hackney has a higher density of takeaway outlets than the England average, but reveals a lower density compared to its statistical peers and the London average.

The City of London is excluded from this comparison due to small resident numbers and a high number of outlets serving the non-resident daytime worker population, which skews the data significantly.

There are no other comparators available relevant to the food environment in Hackney and the City, either over time or with other areas.
