SIMD Review - User Workshops - December 2013 and January 2014
The Scottish Government is carrying out a review of SIMD (the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation) ahead of the publication of SIMD 2015.
As part of the review, we are seeking the views of SIMD users on 'What's Working?' and 'The Future.'
If you have used SIMD data and would like to help make it more relevant to you or your organisation in the future, please come along to one of the SIMD user workshops:
* Glasgow - 16th December 2013
* Stirling - 8th January 2014
* Dundee - 9th January 2014
There will also be a teleconference alternative (date to be announced).
At these events we will examine how we measure deprivation in terms of employment, income, heath, education, access to services, crime, and housing. Issues of urban and rural deprivation will also be explored.
For more details contact Alastair McAlpine (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07850 668 305) or Cath Dickie (email@example.com).
