CDRC Residential Mobility and Deprivation (RMD) Index (LSOA Geography)

The data packs describe Residential Mobility and Deprivation (RMD) datasets held by the CDRC which have been created by original CDRC research. The data packs provide yearly small area estimates (1998-2020) of the mean differences of residential mobility and deprivation of all known adults’ moves to, from and within each neighbourhood (Lower layer Super Output Area (LSOA: England and Wales), Data Zone (DZ: Scotland) and Super Output Area (SOA: Northern Ireland)) in the UK.

These data allow researchers to whether incoming residents likely originate from more or less deprived neighbourhoods, perhaps indicating neighbourhood gentrification or relative obsolescence, each over an extended period. The annual estimates and attribution of precise neighbourhood origins and destinations extends what is available from decennial census data. In addition, researchers can investigate which neighbourhoods are platforms for moves to less or more deprived neighbourhoods, indicating neighbourhood roles in facilitating social mobility. LCR estimates are triangulated with census statistics and can be used to update them during intercensal periods.

Some of the data have been mapped on Trust for London’s Poverty Profile.
