Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2005

The 2005 Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure (NIMDM 2005) contains seven domains of deprivation: • Income Deprivation • Employment Deprivation • Health Deprivation and Disability • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation • Proximity to Services Deprivation • Living Environment Deprivation • Crime and Disorder Indicators.

Each domain contains a number of indicators, totalling 43 overall. Where possible, the indicators relate to 2003. The criteria for inclusion of these indicators were that they should be: • ‘domain specific’ and appropriate for the purpose (as direct as possible measures of that form of deprivation); • measuring major features of that deprivation (not conditions just experienced by a very small number of people or areas); • up-to-date; • capable of being updated on a regular basis; • statistically robust; and • available for the whole of Northern Ireland at a small area level in a consistent form.

Results are provided for these domains and the overall multiple deprivation measure in the form of ranks. Areas are ordered from most deprived (rank 1) to least deprived.

The components of the SOA measures are as described in the domain sections of the Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2005 report. The flow chart in Appendix 7 summarises the process. The Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2005 report is available at https://www.nisra.gov.uk/publications/northern-ireland-multiple-deprivation-measure-2005-report .

This data include ranks and scores at Super Output Area level for the Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2005, the seven constituent domains and the two stand-alone measures: Income Deprivation Affecting Children and Income Deprivation Affecting Older People. The seven Domain Measures (and weights) are: Income (25%), Employment (25%), Health Deprivation and Disability (15%), Education, Skills and Training (15%), Proximity to Services (10%), Living Environment (5%) and Crime and Disorder (5%). For each variable a rank of 1 denotes the most deprived SOA in Northern Ireland and a rank of 890 denotes the least deprived SOA in Northern Ireland. Also included at Electoral Ward level results. The ward measures were created by taking a weighted average of the SOA results. Weights were determined by total population size of SOAs within each ward. There are three domains which lend themselves to presentation at the very small area level. These are Income Deprivation, Employment Deprivation and Proximity to Services Deprivation. A measure of Economic Deprivation has been created by combining these three domains. The Economic Deprivation measure does not form part of the overall NIMDM 2005 but is a stand-alone measure. The Population Estimate variable was calculated as part of the NIMDM 2005 project and relates to mid-2003. This estimate includes armed forces personnel and excludes prisoners. Populations rounded to nearest 5. It was replaced by an updated small area population estimate on 31 March 2010.

Disclosure Control Methods: Mostly ranks are presented in this dataset. When scores are presented they are rounded to two decimal places and do not disclose personal information.

Quality Issues: The quality of the data is very good. See NIMDM 2005 Report Chapter 2 for more information about indicators - https://www.nisra.gov.uk/publications/northern-ireland-multiple-deprivation-measure-2005-report.
