Index of Multiple Deprivation about level of need in designated streets
These are calculated by ranking the 32,844 Lower Super Output Area in England from most deprived to least deprived and dividing them into 10 equal groups. LSOAs in decile 0-10 fall within the most deprived 10% of LSOAs nationally and LSOAs in decile 90-100 fall within the least deprived 10% of LSOAs nationally.
The (IMD) is an overall relative measure of deprivation constructed by combining seven domains of deprivation according to their respective weights, as described below. The domains were combined using the following weights to produce the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation:
- Income Deprivation (22.5%)
- Employment Deprivation (22.5%)
- Education, Skills and Training Deprivation (13.5%)
- Health Deprivation and Disability (13.5%)
- Crime (9.3%)
- Barriers to Housing and Services (9.3%)
- Living Environment Deprivation (9.3%)
