WIMD 2019

The Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) is the Welsh Government’s official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in Wales. It identifies areas with the highest concentrations of several different types of deprivation. WIMD ranks all small areas in Wales from 1 (most deprived) to 1,909 (least deprived).

Here you can find WIMD 2019 overall index ranks and small area ranks for each domain/ type of deprivation as well as geography profile analyses for a range of geographies (i.e. Local Authority). Geography profile analyses compare larger geographies by calculating the number and/or proportion of small areas in a larger geography which are in the most deprived (say) 10 or 20 per cent of areas in Wales. Explore this data more on our WIMD 2019 interactive tool (see links section below).

Indicator data that underlies the index ranks can be found on the WIMD Indicator data tab and more information about WIMD (including results reports and guidance) can be found on the Welsh government website (see links below).

Geospatial information on WIMD 2019 and WIMD 2014, including shapefiles, can be found on Data Map Wales (see link below).
