The Department for Communities and Local Government will be publishing the updated Indices of Deprivation, including the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) on Wednesday 30 September at 9.30am.

The work has been carried out by Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI).

At that time, a link to the Indices of Deprivation 2015 publication will be available on this page and on the statistics release calendar. An email alert will be sent to registered users on the morning of publication.

The department held a consultation in late 2014 on a modest number of proposed changes to indicators. The government response was published in March 2015.

You can register for alerts about the indices by emailing
