The Index of Multiple Deprivation uses a collection of indicators grouped into seven Deprivation Domains to provide a relative estimate of deprivation within England. These domains are given a weighting to indicate their impact on deprivation and are collated together to provide a single Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD).
The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) in conjunction with the Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI) and Deprivation.org published the most recent English Indices of Deprivation in 2019. The English Indices of Deprivation provide an indication of the relative levels of deprivation between small geographies within England.
The report provides the key messages from the 2015 English Indices of Deprivation pertaining to Wiltshire. The excel file provides supporting information. The 2019 report will be published in December 2019.
