Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD)

The English indices of deprivation measure relative deprivation in small areas in England called lower-layer super output areas. The index of multiple deprivation is the most widely used of these indices. It is a combined measure based on a total of 37 separate indicators, each of which reflects a different aspect of deprivation experienced by individuals living in an area.

The attached map of Derbyshire shows where deprivation is the most extensive.
