The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is one of a set of English indices of deprivation, and are released by the Department for Communities and Local Government every three to five years. The latest statistics are for 2015, and use data from 2012 to 2013. IMD results are sometimes used as criteria for external funding bids (eg Big Lottery).

IMD 2015 is the Government’s official measure of relative deprivation for LSOAs. LSOAs are small geographic areas of approximately 1,500 people, and there are 128 LSOAs in Calderdale.

The data is provided at Lower layer Super Output Area (LSOA), Neighbourhood and Ward levels in Calderdale. It shows rank, decile and percentage compared with 38,824 LSOAs in England.
