Exclusive ward-level IMD reports
Following the release of the latest Indices of Multiple Deprivation data, we've been hard at work making the metrics more accessible for certain geographies. As promised
last month, we've processed the data to work at ward-level – not available from the original release – and have also produced a few reports to enable policy makers and others to identify the location, nature and extent of local deprivation.
These reports are exclusive to LG Inform Plus subscribers
and you may not be able to find this ward-level data anywhere else.
Ward-level data is available for the first time in a detailed ward report which summarises all IMD indicators (overall, domains, sub-domains and supplementary indices) for an individual chosen ward. For the various indicators, wards are ranked within their local authority, region and England.
One report summarises the overall IMD indicator for all wards within a chosen authority. The score for each ward is shown, together with details of the ten most/least deprived wards, and a map showing IMD distribution. Another is similar, but summarises the overall IMD indicator for all LSOAs within a chosen authority.
More detailed versions of the last two reports will be available for other IMD indicators in due course. For more information, please contact Stephen Richards.
