The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities commissioned OCSI to update the indices in both 2015 and 2019.
The English Indices of Deprivation provide a comprehensive measure of relative deprivation in small areas called lower-layer super output areas (LSOAs) in England.
The Index of Multiple Deprivation, which is the most widely used index, is based on 39 separate indicators organised across seven domains of deprivation.
