England’s Deprivation Mapped

The Guardian newspaper says that the Indices of Multiple Deprivation are “possibly the most significant research into poverty in England ever put together”. The Indices, study poverty across a range of significant indicators to try and work out which places in England are the poorest.

The Open Data Blog has created a Google Maps based application, called the Indices of Deprivation Explorer, to enable users to browse the data by location.

The map lets you explore the 50 most deprived and the 50 least deprived areas in England. As well as displaying the overall Indices of Multiple Deprivation the application allows you to view individual indices of deprivation, such as crime, housing, health and income.
