- DescriptionIndices of Deprivation 2004 data at Output Area level. Data has been modelled down to Output Area level to enable more detailed examination of 'pockets of deprivation' than available using standard data.
- DescriptionThe Index of Multiple Deprivation 2004 (IMD 2004) is the most up-to-date and comprehensive measure of multiple deprivation available. It is an update and reformulation of the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2000. Drawn primarily from 2001 data and presented at small area level, the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2004 is a unique and invaluable tool for measuring deprivation nationally and locally.
- DescriptionThis report presents the conceptual framework of the new Indices of Deprivation 2007 (ID 2007); the component indicators and domains; the methodology for creating the domains and the overal Index of Multiple Deprivation; the Lower Super Output Area level results and the Local Authority summary results.
- DescriptionThe report describes the three methods used to derive empirical weights for the Index of Multiple Deprivation. The researchers used a survey approach, a revealed preference approach and a discrete choice experiment which all aimed to identify the 'relative' importance of each of the seven domains of deprivation and use this to assign weights to combine the domains into the IMD.
