General description
WIMD is the Welsh Government’s 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. As such, WIMD is a measure of multiple deprivation that is both an area-based measure and a measure of relative deprivation.

WIMD ranks all small areas in Wales from 1 (most deprived) to 1,909 (least deprived).

The Index has three main components:
- The Index itself, which is a set of ranks;
- The ranks of the eight types of deprivation, or domains, from which the overall Index is constructed;
- The underlying indicators, which are directly measurable, and which are combined to create the domain ranks. Many, but not all, of the indicators are produced as rates. The units depend on what is being measured.

All of these components are calculated for each of the LSOAs in Wales. The overall 2019 WIMD ranks and the ranks of the eight domains of deprivation are published on the StatsWales website. Where available, the underlying indicator data is now published annually on StatsWales.
