The new Indices of Deprivation 2010 were published on 24th March 2011.
The Indices of Deprivation is a group of ten Indices which all measure different aspects of deprivation.
They are used to analyse patterns of deprivation. The most widely used is the Index of Multiple Deprivation which is a combination of a group of indices.
The Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 combines a number of indicators, chosen to cover a range of economic, social and housing issues, into a single deprivation score for each small area in England. The weightings are shown in the table below.
Each area is ranked relative to another area according to their level of deprivation. (1 is the most deprived, 32,482 the least deprived.) As with the 2007 and 2004 Indices, the Indices of Deprivation 2010 have been produced at Lower Super Output Area level, of which there are 32,482 in the country.
