As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what Super Output Areas there are in Fareham constituency, ranked by level of deprivation; and what criteria are used to determine deprivation. (231753)
The attached table includes a list of all Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs) which fall within the parliamentary constituency of Fareham. Entries are ranked in order of deprivationwith the most deprived LSOAs at the top.
The two columns included show the ranking of each Lower Layer Super Output Area in terms of deprivation:
(1) within the parliamentary constituency of Fareham; and,
(2) compared to all LSOAs in England.
Low ranks indicate a high level of deprivationso the most deprived LSOA in Fareham is Fareham 003C which is ranked 6,420th most deprived LSOA in England (from a total of 32,482 SOAs).
The most commonly used indicator of deprivation, and that applied here, is the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2007 (IMD07). The IMD07 combines a number of indicators, chosen to cover a range of economic, social and housing issues, into a single deprivation score for each small area in England. More details on the construction and uses of the IMD07 can be obtained from the Communities and Local Government website:
The ONS run Neighbourhood Statistics servicehttp:/neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk enables users to identify the location of individual SOAs and also to view the different domains of deprivation which make up the IMD.
