Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2010

The Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is a combination of the different types of deprivation (domains) experienced by individuals living in an area, which can be recognised and measured separately and are listed below. The domains are combined to recognise the impact of each domain and provide the overall level of deprivation. The IMD presents data at Lower Super Output areas (LSOA), which are smaller than Wards, but can be clustered together to fit within Ward boundaries. The LSOA with a rank of 1 is the most deprived, and 32482 the least deprived, on this measure.
  • Income Deprivation - relates to the proportion of the population living in low income families, who are reliant on means tested benefits. The domain score is therefore the proportion of the population living in low income families.
  • Employment Deprivation - defined as involuntary exclusion of the working age population from work and includes elements of the 'hidden unemployed' such as those out of work due to illness and disability.
  • Health Deprivation and Disability - identifies areas with relatively high rates of people who die prematurely or whose quality of life is impaired by poor health or who are disabled.
  • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation - consists of two sub-domains: one relating to the lack of educational attainment among children and young people and one relating to lack of qualifications in terms of skills among the working age adult population.
  • Barriers to Housing and Services - the purpose of this domain is to measure the barriers to housing and key local services (GP premises, supermarkets, primary schools and post offices). The indicators fall into two sub-domains 'geographical barriers' and 'wider barriers'. The latter includes issues relating to access to housing.
  • The Living Environment Domain - consists of two sub-domains: the 'indoors' living environment which measures the quality of housing and the 'outdoors' living environment which includes measures of air quality and road traffic accidents.
  • The Crime Domain - measures the rate of recorded crime for four key dimensions of crime. These are burglary, theft, criminal damage and violence as these are deemed to represent levels of personal and material victimisation at a small area level.
The linked briefing note and maps provide an indication of the current levels of deprivation in Redcar and Cleveland. Furthermore they compare the levels of deprivation in the borough between the IMDs which were undertaken in 2004, 2007 and 2010.

The Child Well-being Index (CWI) represents the first attempt to create a small area index exclusively for children in England. A brief summary of the results of the Child Well-being Index can be found below.
