The 2010 Indices of Deprivation

This Briefing Paper presents an initial analysis of the Indices of Deprivation 2010.

The Indices of Deprivation 2010 are the most comprehensive and up-to-data available on multiple deprivation and the different elements of deprivation, but they do not track change up to 2010. The data refers to the period ending in 2008, which means that the indices track change principally in the period from 2004/05 to 2007/08.

Previous Indices have been widely used by the government, Yorkshire Forward and other agencies to determine eligibility and priorities for many important funding programmes, and it is likely that the Indices of Deprivation 2010 will be used in similar ways.

The geographical base used for the collection and analysis of data is the Lower Level Super Output Area (LSOA), areas with a population of around 1,500 persons, which do not fit exactly into ward areas. This means that, where deprivation is presented at a ward level, each LSOA has had to be allocated to one ward only, which can over or under state the extent of deprivation in different wards.

A summary of the key points in the paper follows. The full report is available to download:
