General description

The data here underlies the analysis of deep-rooted deprivation. This analysis can be found in the WIMD 2019 results report.

The Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in Wales. It is designed to identify those small areas where there are the highest concentrations of several different types of deprivation. WIMD 2019 is the most recent index and ranks all small areas in Wales from 1 (most deprived) to 1,909 (least deprived). The small areas are otherwise known as Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs). This geography is built from census data and represents small areas each with a population of around 1,600 people.

This data includes WIMD overall and domain ranks for the last 5 WIMD publications (WIMD 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2019) and identifies which category of deep-rooted deprivation each small area in Wales falls into.
The data table has four different views, each showing areas that fall into each of the four categories.
Full descriptions of the four categories of deep-rooted deprivation can be seen on this webpage.

Data reference periods

Please see the Technical Reports and Summary of WIMD Index changes on the WIMD webpage for more information (see weblinks tab).

Users, uses and context

This data has been provided to help users to identify areas which have left, joined or remained in the most deprived group. However, care should be taken in using ranks to infer change over time. Reasons for this include alterations to the geographical boundaries of LSOAs and index design changes between iterations. See the Summary of WIMD Index changes on the WIMD index guidance webpage for more details. Please also note that WIMD is a measure of relative deprivation and therefore doesn’t give an indication of the level of deprivation in small areas or how this has changed over time. See the spreadsheet of data underlying deep-rooted deprivation analysis for more details.

Please see the WIMD 2019 Publication on the weblinks tab for more information on users and uses and context.
