The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities commissioned OCSI to update the indices in both 2015 and 2019.
The English Indices of Deprivation measure relative deprivation in small areas in England called lower-layer super output areas (LSOAs). The index of multiple deprivation is the most widely used.
The indices are based on 39 separate indicators, organised across seven distinct domains of deprivation. These are
combined and weighted to calculate the Index of Multiple Deprivation. This is an overall measure of multiple deprivation experienced by people living in an area. It is available for every LSOA in England. All neighbourhoods in England are then ranked according to their level of deprivation relative to that of other areas.
The data and the accompanying reports are available to download online:
The data is also available to use in Local Insight. For example, you can:
