The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD)
The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) was created in 2004 by the Department for Communities and the Local Government as a method of identifying deprived areas across UK. The classification is presented as a series of scores which relate to how deprived areas are overall and also by a series of separate domains
How was the IMD created?
The IMD is multivariate and includes numerous variables which were selected as both direct and indirect indicators of deprivation at Super Output Area (SOA) level. The IMD classification was created for seven domains which included income, employment, health and disability, education skills and training, barriers to housing and services, living environment and crime. A series of statistical techniques are conducted on these data including factor analysis , standardisation and exponential transformation. The results are presented as 7 separate domains of deprivation and one overall measure at SOA.
