General description
The data here is for the underlying indicators that feed into the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD).
WIMD is the Welsh Government’s official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in Wales. It is designed to identify small areas where there are the highest concentrations of several different types of deprivation.
The full index is only updated every 4 to 5 years but many of the indicators are updated in the interim period and some are updated annually. It is not possible to update all the indicators every year which is why you may have some blanks when you select different years.

All indicators are available down to Lower Super Output Area level. This is a geography that is built from census data – it aims to outline small areas with a population between 1,000 and 3,000 people. However, on this page the data only goes down to Communities First level.

Data collection and calculation
There are various different methods for the different indicators – please see the WIMD 2014 Technical Report on the weblinks tab for more information.

Data reference periods
The reference periods differ across the indicators - please see WIMD: A guide to analysing indicator data on the weblinks tab for more information.

Users, uses and context
Please see the WIMD 2014 Publication on the weblinks tab for more information on users and uses and context.

Rounding applied
Please see WIMD: A guide to analysing indicator data on the weblinks tab for more information on rounding and disclosure control.

Revisions information
There were some small revisions made to the 2014 employment data in May 2015 and to the 2014 income data in August 2015. In August 2018 a revision was made to 2017 Low Birth Weight data due to an error in the source data originally provided to us by a third party. This revision has led to a reduction in the percentage of low birth weights for some areas in the 2017 data.
