The Indices of Multiple Deprivation uses a collection of indicators grouped into seven Deprivation Domains to provide a relative estimation 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 Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in conjunction with Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI) published the English Indices of Deprivation 2015. The English Indices of deprivation provides an indication as to the relative levels of deprivation between small geographies within England.
