This paper develops on the analysis in the SIMD 2009 General Report to explore what has happened to small area concentrations of multiple deprivation over time.
This paper provides guidance on how analysis of SIMD over time can be performed. It provides a series of examples, using Glasgow and North Ayrshire as case studies, which can be used to perform similar analysis for other areas.
Outlines a number of different ways in which the SIMD can be analysed, looking beyond the commonly used 15% cut-off. A series of spreadsheets are also provided enabling you to create your own bar code charts and box plots.
This paper uses the SIMD to compare indicators of income, employment, health, crime etc. between the most and least deprived parts of a local area. Fife Council area is used as an example but the paper provides guidance outlining how the analysis can be re-created for any chosen area.
This work identifies the most income, employment and access deprived rural datazones in Scotland. A paper summarises the method used and the main findings whilst a spreadsheet provides access to background data for a local authority of interest.
This paper analyses whether deprived individuals are now more or less concentrated in the most deprived datazones than previously. It also provides guidance on how to perform this sort of analysis
SIMD 2009 shows that many of Glasgow's datazones have seen improvements in rank over time but which areas are correspondingly seeing their datazone ranks worsen and is this a real or a relative decline? This paper considers these issues.
