Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

These deprivation scores are based on those created by Townsend, Morris, Carstairs, Jarman and the Department of the Environment (DoE).

Calculating measures of deprivation is perhaps one of the commonest uses of census data. Data on, for example, housing, employment, social class and availability of cars are used to create a single measure of area deprivation. There are various measures of deprivation that use different census variables or give different weights to the same variables.

In addition, the Deprivation data webpage at UK Data Service Census Support provides more information and links to related measures available elsewhere.

These data are restricted to staff and students from UK further/higher education institutions. If your intended use of the data involves partnership with or funding from any non-academic organisations or individuals, or if you are uncertain about whether your use of the data is entirely academic, please Get in touch.
