New deprivation indices (IMD 2010) released today

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.

For more detail and information, see the key findings paper below as well as the District Summaries:

  2. ID 2010
    We are working on ID2010 in West Sussex and interested to see how people are coping with the change in number of LAs between 2007 and 2010 following the boundary changes in 2009. We have (crudely )recreated the LA rankings based on 354 LAs and for example this would suggest that Nuneaton has become relatively less deprived not more. So am interested to see how you have compared 2007 and 2010 rankings for your key findings. Thanks

  3. Hi Jacqueline,

    I know we’ve spoken about this since but I thought it might be useful for others too. I contacted CLG about this problem and they have sent me both the IMD 2007 local authority measures for the new local authority boundaries and calculated the IMD 2010 results on the old boundaries to allow local authorities to make the comparisons in which ever direction they prefer. Both these spreadhseets are now available in the updated blog post.
