Indices of Deprivation 2000

The file contains the Indices of Deprivation 2000 at ward level for Birmingham. The Index has been constructed by the Index Team at Oxford University. These figures are reproduced acknowledging the source (Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, Indices of Deprivation 2000) .
Summary of File
The file contains information about the ward level Indices of Deprivation and the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2000 ('IMD 2000'). The six Domain Indices are: * Income * Employment * Health Deprivation and Disability * Education, Skills and Training * Housing * Geographical Access to Services

A Child Poverty Index is also presented, which is a subset of the Income Domain. The overall Index of Multiple Deprivation 2000 ('IMD'), the six domains, and the Child Poverty Index ('Child') are each presented.
The Overall Index of Multiple Deprivation 2000
The overall IMD 2000 (see the following 'IMD' page) has two data columns: The first data column is the Index of Multiple Deprivation Score (in red). The second data column is the Rank of the Index of Multiple Deprivation (in blue). The ward with a rank of 1 is the most deprived, and 8414 the least deprived, on this overall measure. The IMD 2000 was constructed by combining the six transformed domain scores, using the following weights: * Income (25%) * Employment (25%) * Health Deprivation and Disability (15%) * Education, Skills and Training (15%) * Housing (10%) * Geographical Access to Services (10%)
The Six Domain Indices
Each of the domains has two data columns: The first data column is the Domain Score (in red). This was constructed by combining the indicators within that domain. The scores for the Income and Employment Domains are given as percentages of the ward population. This is not the case for the four other domains.
The second data column is the Rank of the Domain Score (in blue). The ward with a rank of 1 is the most deprived, and 8414 the least deprived, for each domain.
The Child Poverty Index The Child Poverty Index has two data columns: The first is the Child Poverty Index Score (in red). This was constructed by combining the indicators within the Income domain, for children aged under 16 only. The score in this instance is a rate, and so indicates that x% of children aged less than 16 are in low income families in each ward. The second column is the Rank of the Child Poverty Index Score (in blue). The ward with a rank of 1 is the most deprived, and 8414 the least deprived. This Child Poverty Index is a sub-set of the Income Domain, and so is not a separate domain. The Income Domain includes people of all ages, whereas the Child Poverty Index is for 0-16 year olds only. Please Note All scores are presented to two decimal places. In some cases wards with apparently the same score will be given different ranks, according to their actual score.
