Detail of outcome
This is the government response to the consultation that preceded the indices of deprivation 2015.
There was a high level of support for the proposed changes to indicators for this update of the indices of deprivation and the department has implemented these changes. The indices of deprivation 2015 were published on 30 September 2015.
The Department for Communities and Local Government is updating the indices of deprivation, including the index of multiple deprivation, for publication in 2015.
This consultation asks for views on the final proposals for updating the indices. These proposals were developed following extensive data exploration and were informed by early engagement exercises with users.
The consultation focuses on a modest number of changes proposed to the approach used in the indices of deprivation 2010 and also invites views on dissemination and outputs.
