Index of Multiple Deprivation 2015 – National and Birmingham

by on 30 September, 2015

Today, Communities and Local Government released an updated version of what’s known as the English Indices of Multiple Deprivation. This scores and ranks relative levels of deprivation in all neighbourhoods (small areas known as LSOAs) across England according to seven different dimensions involving income, employment, education, health, crime, housing, and the living environment. It also summarises this information to local authority level.

The latest IMD shows that Birmingham ranks the 6th highest of all English local authorities, in terms of proportions of highly deprived neighbourhoods (39.6% of Birmingham). Middlesborough was the highest ranked local authority (48.8%).

The following attachment shows scoring and ranking for all English LSOAs and Birmingham-only LSOAs, if you want to do your own analysis.
