Description of the Area
The Indices of Multiple Deprivation are a collection of indicators, brought together to give an overall score intended to show deprivation levels in Lower Super Output Areas, in seven themes - income, employment, health and disability, education skills and training, barriers to housing and services, living environment and crime.
There are 32,844 Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs) in the country. The LSOAs shown in the table below are LSOAs that sit wholly or partially within this ward. The first part of the LSOA description indicates which ward the majority of the LSOA sits. The rank shown below is the rank of each LSOA when compared to all other LSOAs in the country. 1 is most deprived, 32,844 is least deprived.
These indices were released in 2015.

The dimensions of deprivation used to classify households are indicators based on the four selected household characteristics. A household is deprived in a dimension if they meet one or more of the following conditions:
- Employment: any member of a household not a full-time student is either unemployed or long-term sick
- Education: no person in the household has at least level 2 education (see highest level of qualification), and no person aged 16-18 is a fulltime student
- Health and disability: any person in the household has general health 'bad or very bad' or has a long term health problem
- Housing: Household's accommodation is ether overcrowded, with an occupancy rating -1 or less, or is in a shared dwelling, or has no central heating
A household is classified as being deprived in none, or one to four of these dimensions in any combination.profileHeadline
