While IMD is principally used for looking at small areas DCLG does provide some summary data for larger areas e.g. Local Authorities. However, the pattern of deprivation across large areas can be complex. In some areas, deprivation is concentrated in pockets, rather than evenly spread throughout. In some other areas the opposite picture is seen, with deprivation spread relatively evenly throughout the area, and with no highly deprived areas. Care needs to be taken when using the summary values due to the effects of averaging.
This report shows information on IMD and the underlying domain indices.
