Indices of deprivation 2010: Living Environment domain

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 the quality of individuals’ immediate surroundings both within and outside
the home. The indicators fall into two sub-domains: the ‘indoors’ living environment, which
measures the quality of housing, and the ‘outdoors’ living environment which contains two
measures relating to air quality and road traffic accidents. Four indicators are combined to
calculate this domain:

Sub-domain: The indoors living environment

  • Social and private housing in poor condition
  • Houses without central heating.

Sub-domain: The outdoors living environment

  • Air quality
  • Road traffic accidents.
