The Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD 2010) was released today by Communities and Local Government. The IMD 2010 attempts to measure a broader concept of multiple deprivation at a smaller geographical level. The Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2010 (IMD 2010) replaces the Indices of Deprivation 2007 as the official measure of deprivation in England. Most of the indicators used in the IMD 2010 are from 2008 although some of the indicators come from other time points such as the 2001 Census.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough has the highest levels of deprivation in Warwickshire with a ranking of 108 out of the 326 Local Authority Districts in England, while Stratford-on-Avon District is the least deprived in Warwickshire with a national rank of 278th.
