2015 Indices of Multiple Deprivation Maps by Ward


The English Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2015 were published on 30th September 2015. Most indicators relate to data for the financial year 2012/13. It is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas (also known as LSOAs) or neighbourhoods in England. It scores and ranks each area using these seven different dimensions or domains each of which is based on a basket of indicators:

• Income Deprivation
• Employment Deprivation
• Education, Skills & Training Deprivation
• Health Deprivation & Disability
• Crime
• Barriers to Housing and Services
• Living Environment Deprivation

The data combines information from the domains to produce an overall relative measure of deprivation. In addition there are two supplementary indices: the Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index (IDACI) and the Income Deprivation Affecting Older People Index (IDAOPI).

The indices of multiple deprivation dataset does not indicate absolute improvement or worsening of local deprivation. More information can be found in MHCLG's Research Report
