Detail of outcome
On 30 March 2010 the Department for Communities and Local Government published a consultation paper on the indices of deprivation. This was a technical consultation that sought the views of users of the indices of deprivation on the need for an update to the indices and the methodology and data sources any future update should be based on. This document summarises the responses received and the government’s response to these comments.
This consultation seeks user views on plans for the English indices of deprivation. Responses to this consultation will help inform the content, guidance and outputs of the indices, alongside other sources of evidence.
