Deprivation and poverty

This section shows a number of measures of deprivation across West Sussex, including child poverty and fuel poverty.

The most recently available deprivation data are from the 2015 English Indices of Deprivation and this shows relative deprivation at small areas (LSOAs). Data on household deprivation comes from the 2011 census and can be found in the census demographics section of the JSNA website.

The Indices of Deprivation is an area-based measure of relative levels of deprivation in small areas, (Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs), which contain approximately 1,500 people). It can be used to compare the deprivation across different areas, identify the most deprived areas within a larger geography (for example in the CCG), and to examine which domains of deprivation are more or less prominent in an area. The Indices cannot be used to quantify how deprived an area is (nor can it say by how much one area is more deprived than another), and there are different indices of deprivation for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (so comparisons cannot be made across countries).

The indices are published by the Department for Communities and Local Government every 3-4 years and are widely used, notably in funding allocations and targeting. The most recent update is the ID2015, released in September 2015 using data mostly from 2012/13. ID2015 is made up of seven domains of deprivation, although each domain is not given equal weighting. From these, an overall score of small area deprivation is calculated; these are then ranked from most deprived (1) to least deprived (32,844). It is important to note that the indices measure deprivation and not affluence (the least deprived area may not necessarily be the most affluent).

Indices of multiple deprivation at GP practice level

GP practices do not have established geographical boundaries (e.g. people residing in one area may be registered to GP practices outside of their local area and more than one GP practice may operate in a single area). However, using the January 2016 release of residential location of GP registered patients, it is possible to create a deprivation score for each GP practice ‘reach’.

The GP Practice deprivation score is the registered population (as at 31st December 2015) weighted by ID2015 score, as a proportion of the total population registered to the GP. This is calculated by taking the deprivation score for every LSOA where a GP has registrations multiplied by the number of registrations for the GP in that LSOA and dividing this total by the number of people registered to the GP.

The figure below shows GP practices within each CCG in West Sussex by their national decile group (practices in dark blue are estimated to have the most deprived populations in England whereas those in orange are the least deprived).

Briefing - Indices of Deprivation 2015

This briefing details the information published by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG). The Indices of Deprivation 2015 (ID2015) updates the 2010 indices.

The ID2015 measures relative deprivation, i.e. how deprived one area is compared with another; it does not measure absolute deprivation, i.e. how deprived an area is compared with how deprived it was a year ago.

West Sussex ranked 131st of 152 upper tier authorities (1 being most deprived, 152 being least deprived). The county remains one of the least deprived areas in the country. The most deprived local authority was Blackpool.
In relation to neighbouring authorities, West Sussex is relatively less deprived than East Sussex (ranked 99th) and Brighton and Hove (ranked 73rd); and more deprived than Hampshire (ranked 141st) and Surrey (ranked 150th).
