The Index of Deprivation, 2010

In spring 2011, the new Indices of Deprivation 2010 were published on behalf of Communities and Local Government. The ID 2010 is based on the approach, structure and methodology that were used to create the earlier index of deprivation. The latest version updates the earlier work by using more recent data.

The Index of Deprivation includes seven main domains and six further sub domains. There is also a measure of Multiple Deprivation made up from the other domains. Each of the 32,482 Lower Super Output Areas (LSOA's) in England have been assigned a score and rank. In Dorset there are 247 LSOA's.

The domains are:

  • Income Deprivation Domain

  • Employment Deprivation Domain

  • Health deprivation and Disability Domain

  • Education, Skills and Training Domain with the sub domains: Children/Young people, and: skills

  • Barriers to Housing and Services with the sub domains: wider barriers and Geographical barriers

  • Crime Domain

  • Living Environment Deprivation Domain with the sub domains: the "indoors" living environment  and: the "outdoors" living environment

There are also supplementary income indicators:

  • Income deprivation affecting children index

  • Income deprivation affecting older people

Also available to download is the Index of Deprivation 2010 (excel, 540kb) (opens in a new window) ; a spreadsheet that gives all the IMD scores, and ranks all the LSOA's nationally - within Dorset and within individual districts. It also shows the full ranking scores for all the districts and wider county area, for all the domains and sub domains.
