Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD 2019) reports and data

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) published the latest Indices of Deprivation (IoD) in 2019. The Indices of Deprivation (2019) provides a relative ranking of areas across the country according to their level of deprivation and is the primary source of information on deprivation in England. The IMD measures deprivation at neighbourhood level known as Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs), which contain approximately 1,500 people, and ranks each of the 32,844 LSOAs in England by their level of deprivation and splits them into 10 equal groups known as deciles. The original IMD data produced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) can be downloaded below along with a summary slide set. In addition a series of maps are also available below illustrating the deprivation decile assignment for each of Southampton’s 148 LSOAs for each domain of deprivation, along with an interactive mapping tool produced by MHCLG, which allows the data for the whole of England to be explored and compared with 2015.

Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD 2010) reports and data [archive]

This section contains archived content from the IMD (2010), for the latest data on deprivation in the city, see the IMD (2019) above. The Department of Communities and Local Government published the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 (IMD) in March 2011. The IMD 2010 provided a relative ranking of areas across England according to their level of deprivation and was based on the concept that deprivation consists of more than just poverty. The majority of the data underpinning the IMD (2010) comes from 2008 although some data comes from other time points such as the 2001 census. The IMD (2010) has now been superseded by the IMD (2015) and IMD (2019) which should be used in most instances. However, documents and data relating to IMD (2010) are provided below for comparative purposes.
