Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2015
The Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is a long standing method used by the Government to measure relative deprivation across small areas of England called Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs) and is updated every three years. Deprivation in these terms is used to cover a wide range of issues (or “domains”).
The purpose of the English Indices of Deprivation 2015 is to identify small areas of England which are experiencing multiple aspects of deprivation. Key users of the Indices are local authorities where the Indices are used to identify the local areas with the greatest level of need for support or intervention. Examples include: analysing community safety data to evaluate neighbourhood policing and partnerships, using the Indices as local measures of community cohesion, investigating patterns of 'risk of youth offending', identifying the greatest health inequalities between the most and least deprived populations or for context in community safety strategic assessments.
The Indices of Deprivation 2015 is based on the concept that deprivation consists of more than just poverty. Poverty is not having enough money to get by whereas deprivation refers to a general lack of resources and opportunities. The Indices of Deprivation 2015 is the collective name for a group of 7 indices or domains which measure different aspects of deprivation. All these issues are dealt with in other areas of the JSNA.
- Health and Disability - Tackling life expectancy and Premature mortality
- Education, Skills and Training
- Housing and Services
- Living Environment
