CLG have released The English Indices of Deprivation 2010 which updates the English Indices of Deprivation 2007.  It measures relative levels of deprivation in small areas of England called Lower Super Output Areas. The overall domain combines a number of indicators, chosen to cover a range of economic, social and housing issues, into a single deprivation score for each small area in England. This allows each area to be ranked relative to one another according to their level of deprivation.

The Department for Communities and Local Government have produced a Summary Report on the Indices of Deprivation 2007. The report states that "over half of the very highest Index of Multiple Deprivation ranks (1% of areas) are in the North West and none are in London".  The Regional Intelligence Unit has produced a summary of key results which are available to download below.
