How is IMD calculated?

IMD 2015 ranks every small area or neighbourhood in England from 1 (most deprived area) to 32,844 (least deprived area) and is based on 37 separate indicators, organised across seven distinct domains of deprivation which are combined using the following weights:

  • income deprivation 22.5%
  • employment deprivation 22.5%
  • health deprivation and disability 13.5%
  • education, skills and training deprivation 13.5%
  • barriers to housing and services 9.3%
  • crime 9.3%
  • living environment deprivation 9.3%

 

What are the small areas?

The small areas or neighbourhoods used are called Lower-layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs), of which there are 32,844 in England.  LSOAs are designed to be of a similar population size with an average of 1,500 residents each. There are 161 LSOAs in Redbridge.

How is IMD used?

National and local organisations use IMD to distribute funding or target resources to areas. It is widely used across central Government to focus programmes on the most deprived areas. Locally, it is often used as evidence in the development of strategies, to target interventions and in bids for funding.
