Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010
The Department of Communities and Local Government has published the latest Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). The IMD 2010 provides a relative ranking of areas across England according to their level of deprivation and is based on the concept that deprivation consists of more than just poverty.
Southampton is ranked 81st on the overall IMD 2010 out of the 326 Local Authorities in England, (where 1 equals the most deprived) a drop of 10 places from 2007 when the ranking was 91st out of 354 Local Authorities. The majority of the data underpinning the IMD 2010 represents 2008 although some data comes from other time points such as the 2001 census.
The IMD 2015 is also available.
