UK: Tracking Economic and Child Income Deprivation at Neighbourhood Level in England, 1999 – 2009
Source: Department for Communities and Local Government (UK)
This release presents the Economic Deprivation Index and the Children in Income Deprived households Index. These indices track levels of economic deprivation from 1999 to 2009 in small areas in England called Lower-layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs).
Economic deprivation is not spread evenly across the country. In
2009, the proportion of people aged under 60 living in income-
deprived households ranged from 0% to 71% across LSOAs.
Employment deprivation rates were similarly wide-ranging.
On average, income deprivation rates fell between 1999 and
2008, but increased between 2008 and 2009. The most deprived
LSOAs saw the greatest decreases between 1999 and 2008 and
the greatest increases from 2008 to 2009. The pattern was similar
for employment deprivation.
