O2C ARC: Districts & SOAs – Income Deprivation Affecting Children and Older People (2007) ( PE712007 )

The Index of Multiple Deprivation 2007 (IMD 2007) is a measure of multiple deprivation at the small area level. The IMD 2007 is based on the idea of distinct dimensions of deprivation which can be recognised and measured separately.

The supplementary Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index (IDACI) is a subset of the Income Deprivation Domain of the IMD 2007, and shows the percentage of children in each SOA that live in families that are income deprived (ie, in receipt of Income Support, Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Working Families’ Tax Credit or Disabled Person’s Tax Credit below a given threshold). The IDACI is not combined with the other Domains into the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation as the children are already captured in the Income Deprivation Domain. The lower the IDACI score the less deprived that area is. A rank of 1 is assigned to the most deprived SOA and a rank of 32,482 is assigned to the least deprived SOA, for presentation purposes. Income Deprivation Affecting Children relates to the population who are aged less than 16

The supplementary Income Deprivation Affecting Older People Index (IDAOPI) is a subset of the Income Deprivation Domain. This comprises the percentage of an SOA’s population aged 60 and over who are Income Support, Jobseeker’s Allowance or Incapacity Benefit claimants aged 60 and over and their partners (if also aged 60 or over). The IDAOPI is not combined with the other Domains into the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation as these income deprived older people are already captured in the Income Deprivation Domain. The lower the IDAOPI score the less deprived that area is. Again, a rank of 1 is assigned to the most deprived SOA and a rank of 32,482 is assigned to the least deprived SOA, for presentation. Income Deprivation Affecting Older People relates to the population aged 60 years or older.
