This 2010 release updates the English indices of deprivation 2007.
The English indices of deprivation measure relative levels of deprivation in small areas of England called ‘lower layer super output areas’.
Most of the indicators used in these statistics are from 2008.
Key results from the report are:
- over 5 million people lived in the most deprived areas in England in 2008 and 38% of them were income deprived
- Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Manchester, Knowsley, the City of Kingston-upon Hull, Hackney and Tower Hamlets are the local authorities with the highest proportion of lower layer super output areas among the most deprived in England
- 98% of the most deprived lower layer super output areas are in urban areas but there are also pockets of deprivation across rural areas
- 56% of local authorities contain at least one lower layer super output area amongst the 10% most deprived in England
- 88% of the lower layer super output areas that are the most deprived in 2010 were also among the most deprived in 2007
We have also published guidance and a technical report to the English indices of deprivation 2010.
