Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010

The Communities and Local Government department (CLG) issued the ‘English Indices of Deprivation 2010’ in March 2011.  The Indices have been constructed by the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at the University of Oxford for the ODPM.


The research and information team has produced an Instant Atlas report| of the Indices of deprivation.
