DatasetIndex of Multiple Deprivation 2010
Dataset Description

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. This allows each area to be ranked relative to one another according to their level of deprivation. For each measure each district is given a rank and score as with the Lower Super Output Area results, a rank of 1 indicates that the district is the most deprived according to the measure and a rank of 326 indicates that the district is the least deprived. The IMD 2010 was constructed by combining the seven transformed domain scores, using the following weights:
         *  Income (22.5%)
         *  Employment (22.5%)
         *  Health and Disability (13.5%)
         *  Education, Skills and Training (13.5%)
         *  Barriers to Housing and Services (9.3%)
         *  Crime (9.3%)
         *  Living Environment (9.3%)
It is important to remember that the Index of Multiple Deprivation is a relative not an absolute measure of deprivation. It is also a snapshot at a particular point in time.
The Indices have been constructed by the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at the University of Oxford.
