Major new datasets

Indices of Deprivation 2010: Communities and Local Government (CLG) have published the Indices of Deprivation 2010. The Indices of Deprivation (IoD) have been used extensively by central and local government to identify areas that would benefit from additional targeted resources. The Indices have, for example, been used to identify areas eligible for Neighbourhood Renewal Funding and Local Enterprise Growth Initiative. The new IoD 2010 updates earlier versions of the Indices with more recent data. Most of the indicators used in these statistics are from 2008. We have included all of the Local Authority summaries, domains, sub-domains and supplementary indices as part of the update.

Births by age of mother: Live births by the age of mother when giving birth has been added to the system. Data is based on mothers usual residence and is broken down by nine broad age bands and contains counts and rates per age cohort.

Slope Index of Inequality for Life Expectancy: The Slope Index of Inequality (SII) in life expectancy is a single score which represents the gap in years of life expectancy between the best-off and worst-off within the local authority, based on a statistical analysis of the relationship between life expectancy and deprivation scores across the whole authority.  Data is broken down by gender.
