Census 2011 Deprivation
The 2011 census collected a wide variety of information which can, in combination, be used to identify some of the characteristics common to deprived households. Census data are available at smaller geographies than the ID2015, down to output area level (covering approximately 100 households); this is useful in West Sussex as in some areas, deprivation is concentrated within smaller neighbourhoods, where affluence and deprivation are “cheek by jowl”.
The census examines four dimensions of deprivation:
- Employment – a household is considered deprived if any member of a household, who is not a full-time student, is either unemployed or off of work due to long-term sickness
- Education – a household is considered deprived if no person in the household has at least level 2 education, and where no person aged 16-18 is in full-time education
- Health and disability – a household is considered deprived if any person in the household reports their general health to be bad or very bad or if any person in the household reports that they have a long term health problem
- Household overcrowding – a household is considered deprived if the household accommodation is overcrowded (with an occupancy rating of -1 or less), or if the household is in a shared dwelling, or has no central heating
The output for this measure of deprivation is the proportion of households which are identified as deprived on none, one, two, three, or four of the above dimensions of deprivation. Census data is provided at the LSOA level, and as LSOAs are coterminous with CCG boundaries it is possible to determine the proportion of households in the CCG which were deprived on Census day 2011. The table below shows the proportions of households identified as deprived on none, one, two, three, or four deprivation dimensions for each of the CCGs in West Sussex.
|Area||Not deprived in any dimension||Deprived on one dimension||Deprived on two dimensions||Deprived on three dimensions||Deprived on four dimensions||Number of households|
|NHS Crawley CCG||42.1%||34.6%||18.5%||4.5%||0.4%||42,727|
|NHS Coastal West Sussex CCG||44.0%||34.3%||17.70%||3.60%||0.4%||212,042|
|NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG||53.9%||31.0%||12.6%||2.4%||0.2%||90,845|
|West Sussex CCGs combined||46.4%||33.4%||16.4%||3.4%||0.3%||345,614|
The map below shows the proportion of households at Lower-layer super output area level in NHS Coastal West Sussex that were identified as deprived on at least one measure of deprivation from the 2011 Census. Darker areas indicate a higher proportion of deprived households.

The map below shows the proportion of households at Lower-layer super output area level in NHS Coastal West Sussex that were identified as deprived on three or four measure of deprivation from the 2011 Census. Darker areas indicate a higher proportion of deprived households. Using the census 2011 groupings these represent the most deprived areas in the Coastal West Sussex CCG region.
