The latest Index was published in 2011. An updated Index will be published in November 2014, using more up-to-date data and improved indicators based on lessons learnt from the production of previous Indexes.
Information on dissemination plans for WIMD 2014 and additional technical papers can be found under 'Background information'.
Deprivation is the lack of access to opportunities and resources which we might expect in our society. WIMD is a measure of multiple deprivation that is both an area-based measure and a measure of relative deprivation.
WIMD is currently made up of eight separate domains (or types) of deprivation:
- geographical access to services
- community safety
- physical environment
Each domain is compiled from a range of different indicators.
Uses of WIMD
- Give an overall deprivation rank for each of the small areas in Wales.
- Give ranks for the separate deprivation domains for each of the small areas.
- Compare the deprivation ranks for two or more of the small areas.
- Compare two or more local authorities (or other groups of areas) by looking at the proportion of the small areas in the local authority in the most deprived (say) ten per cent in all of Wales.
Although a ranking system such as WIMD cannot be used for monitoring change over time, it is possible to analyse change over time by looking at the underlying indicator data published on StatsWales.
