General description

This table presents data on people in Wales broken down by protected characteristic and WIMD deprivation group.

The data shows the risk and number of people from various protected characteristic groups living in LSOAs in each WIMD deprivation group. It also shows the share of people living in each deprivation group by protected characteristic.

WIMD is the Welsh Government’s official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in Wales. It is designed to identify those small areas (LSOAs) where there are 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). WIMD rankings for this analysis have been grouped into ‘Deprivation Groups’. These have smaller groups of LSOAs at the more deprived end of the distribution (most deprived 10% of all Welsh LSOAs), where the difference between areas is greater than at the less deprived end (least deprived 50% of all Welsh LSOAs). For more information on the measures used in WIMD please see the WIMD links in the weblinks tab.

Rounding applied

Figures are rounded to the nearest 100 and so there may be some apparent slight discrepancies between the sum of constituent items and the totals as shown.

Statistical quality

Annual population data comes from a survey, the results are sample-based estimates and therefore subject to differing degrees of sampling variability, i.e. the true value for any measure lies in a differing range about the estimated value. This range or sampling variability increases as the detail in the data increases.

For statistical quality information on WIMD data, please see the WIMD 2019 Technical Report and the WIMD 2019 Publication on the weblinks tab.
