Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD)

The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) data packs are copies of several files from multiple sources (see below) and is provided as a convenience, for using with the IMD maps displays on the CDRC Maps website.

Small area indices are available as the English Index of Multiple Deprivation, the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation and the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation. These indices provide small area measures of relative deprivation across across the country at the LSOA/ Data Zone, as mapped on CDRC Maps.

The following scores for the indices of relative deprivation are provided: Index of Multiple Deprivation, Income, Living Environment, Health, Housing, Education, Employment and Crime.

The Welsh IMD ranks LSOA's from 1 (most deprived) to 1,909 (least deprived) and is available for 2011, 2014 and 2019. The Scottish IMD ranks Data Zone's from 1 (most deprived) to 6,976 (least deprived) for 2012, 2016 and 2020.
