IMD 2019: Sub domains of deprivation

The ‘IoD2019 Sub-domains’ worksheet in this file contains the ranks and deciles for the six sub-domains and their three respective domains, at Lower-layer Super Output Area (LSOA) level.

For each measure, the LSOA with a rank of 1 is the most deprived and the LSOA with a rank of 32,844 is the least deprived.

The deciles are calculated by ranking the 32,844 LSOAs in England from most deprived to least deprived and dividing them into 10 equal groups. LSOAs in decile 1 fall within the most deprived 10% of LSOAs nationally and LSOAs in decile 10 fall within the least deprived 10% of LSOAs nationally.

The six sub-domains, and their respective domains, are as follows:

·The Education, Skills and Training Deprivation Domain measures the lack of attainment and skills in the local population. The indicators fall into two sub-domains: one relating to children and young people and one relating to adult skills. These two sub-domains are designed to reflect the ‘flow’ and ‘stock’ of educational disadvantage within an area respectively. That is, the Children and Young People Sub-domain measures the attainment of qualifications and associated measures (‘flow’), while the Adult Skills Sub-domain measures the lack of qualifications in the resident working-age adult population (‘stock’).
·The Barriers to Housing and Services Domain measures the physical and financial accessibility of housing and local services. The indicators fall into two sub-domains: the Geographical Barriers Sub-domain, which relates to the physical proximity of local services, and the Wider Barriers Sub-domain which includes issues relating to access to housing such as affordability.
·The Living Environment Deprivation Domain measures the quality of the local environment. The indicators fall into two sub-domains. The Indoors Sub-domain measures the quality of housing; while the Outdoors Sub-domain contains measures of air quality and road traffic accidents.
