Added By allimaupin

This release updates the English Indices of Deprivation 2007.

The English Indices of Deprivation measures relative levels of deprivation in small areas of England called Lower layer Super Output Areas.

Most of the indicators used in these statistics are from 2008.

This domain measures employment deprivation in an area conceptualised as involuntary exclusion
of the working age population from the labour market. A combined count of employment deprived
individuals per LSOA is calculated by summing the following seven indicators:

  • Claimants of Jobseeker’s Allowance (both Contributory and Income-Based) women aged
    18-59 and men aged 18-64, averaged over 4 quarters
  • Claimants of Incapacity Benefit women aged 18-59 and men aged 18-64, averaged over 4
    quarters
  • Claimants of Severe Disablement Allowance women aged 18-59 and men aged 18-64,
    averaged over 4 quarters
  • Claimants of Employment Support Allowance women aged 18-59 and men aged 18-644
  • Participants in New Deal for the 18-24s who are not in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance,
    averaged over 4 quarters
  • Participants in New Deal for 25+ who are not in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance, averaged
    over 4 quarters
  • Participants in New Deal for Lone Parents (after initial interview) aged over 18, averaged
    over 4 quarters.
