About the Dataset

This dataset contains a range of measures which summarise the Indices of Deprivation 2015 at local authority district level.

Local authority districts include lower-tier non-metropolitan districts, London boroughs, unitary authorities and metropolitan districts. At the time of publication, there were 326 local authority districts in England.

Summary measures are provided for each of the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), the seven domains and the supplementary indices of income deprivation among children and older people.

The data for each summary measure are presented in pairs of scores and ranks:

• The first variable in each pair (e.g. ‘average rank’) is the score for the measure. The higher the score, the more deprived the area. • The second variable in each pair (e.g. ‘rank of average rank’) is the rank for the measure. On each measure, the local authority district with a rank of 1 is the most deprived, and the area ranked 326 is the least deprived.

You can find out more about how to interpret these measures in section 3.3 of the Research Report, and how they were calculated in section 3.8 of the Technical Report available at:
