Why is this important?

Measures of morbidity are commonly used to understand the distribution of disability and illness within a community as well to capture the health and well-being of community members. This information enables communities to allocate resources to groups who suffer disproportionately from illness or injury and thus strive to achieve an equitable level of health throughout the community.
