Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010

Department of Communities and Local Government

The IMD identifies areas of multiple deprivation for each local authority area as a whole and also for smaller areas within each local authority known as Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LSOA's).

The 2010 IMD was published by the Department of Communities and Local Government and updates the previous indices released in 2007 and 2004. The methodology underpinning all three indices is broadly the same making it possible to compare changes over time.

The IMD is a relative measure of deprivation and is based on a variety of indicators which have been combined into the domains listed below. The index is designed to give greater weight to certain domains that are considered to be a more significant factor in the experience of deprivation,

  • Income Deprivation Domain (weighting 22.5%);
  • Employment Deprivation Domain (22.5%);
  • Health Deprivation and Disability Domain (13.5%);
  • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation Domain (13.5%);
  • Barriers to Housing and Services Domain (9.3%);
  • Crime Domain (9.3%);
  • The Living Environment Deprivation Domain (9.3%).

Each of the 32,482 LSOA's in England are assigned a score based on deprivation levels, and also a rank based on each of the scores. Rankings for the 326 English districts and boroughs are also calculated. Middlesbrough has a rank of average score of 8 (was 9 in 2007) meaning it is the 8th most deprived local authority area in England.

The table below shows the IMD overall rankings for Middlesbrough wards for 2010, 2007 & 2004, and also highlights rank change from 2007 to 2010. By clicking on the links in the right hand downloads column you can view and compare IMD results for the LSOA's in each of the wards in Middlesbrough.
