The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2015 is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas (or neighbourhoods) in England. The Index of Multiple Deprivation ranks every small area (lsoa) in England from 1 (most deprived area) to 32,844 (least deprived area).
For larger areas like Wards we can look at the proportion of LSOAs within the ward that lie within each decile. Decile 1 represents the most deprived 10% of LSOAs in England while decile 10 shows the least deprived 10% of areas.
This report shows information on IMD and the underlying domain indices.
