CLG (department for Communities and Local Government, formerly known as the ODPM) has issued the Indices of Deprivation 2004. The Indices have been constructed by the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at the University of Oxford on behalf of DCLG.
The Indices are reported at local/district authority level and at county council/unitary authority level. In terms of results:
At the local level, the geography used is the lower level Super Output Area. These areas are based on groupings of Census Output Areas (typically 5) and represent approximately a minimum population of 1000 with a mean population of 1500.The boundaries are constrained to the wards used for 2001 Census, ie the 2003 (new) wards.
There are seven domains which make up the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2004:
Some of the statistics used to calculate the IMD have been released.
These have been presented in the same format as the other maps to enable users to identify the particular drivers of deprivation in certain areas.
The details of the additional statistics including the maps and metadata can be found within the appropriate domain or sub-domain pages.
It is important to note that although the individual statistics that have been mapped have been described in terms of deprivation an area cannot be considered deprived based on one indicator alone. These statistics should only be used to help determine the real drivers behind the overall and domain scores for an individual SOA.
A map image| is available which should help to put the LSOAs in context as to the area of Bournemouth that they cover. View a list of the corresponding LSOA names| suggested by the Research and Information team.
