Indices of Deprivation Domains

The Indices of Deprivation are comprised of an overall Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD); seven domains which contribute to the overall index covering income, employment, health, education, barriers to housing and services, crime and living environment; and two supplementary indices relating to income deprivation in children (under 16) & older people (60+).

The following chart compares the area’s national rank on the IMD, seven domains and two supplementary indices in 2015, with the average ranks for their local authority district and Devon as a whole. The value axis ranges from the most deprived LSOA in the country (1) to the least deprived LSOA in the country (32,844) on a given measure, and the chart is further divided into five sections highlighting the national deprivation group (quintile).
