The Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) 2011 is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in Wales. WIMD 2011 updates the Index published in 2008, without imposing methodological changes, except where data provision makes this unavoidable.

The Index is produced as a set of ranks, with a rank of 1 assigned to the most deprived area, rank 1896 assigned to the least deprived area. Ranks are a relative system of measurement; we can know which areas are more (or less) deprived than others, but not by how much. This is because of the way that the Index needs to be constructed.

The ranks of the Index are calculated for each of the 1896 lower layer super output areas (LSOAs) of Wales. These small areas contain an average population of 1500 people. They were developed by the Office for National Statistics to have consistent population sizes and stable geographies, so that statistical comparisons of small areas over time can be carried out.
