The government Indices of Deprivation were published earlier today, including the overview Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 (IMD2010). Commissioned by CLG from the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at Oxford University, these are an update of the previous 2007 and 2004 datasets.
The full datasets and technical report are available at http://www.communities.gov.uk/communities/research/indicesdeprivation/deprivation10/.
We’ve been hard at work providing the data and visualisations to our Data Packs users, exploring why the IMD2010 is still important, and identifying the headline national and local messages. For further analysis of the Indices and other key social and economic data, please get in touch!
