The Employment Deprivation Domain measures the proportion of the working-age population in an area involuntarily excluded from the labour market. This includes people who would like to work but are unable to do so due to unemployment, sickness or disability, or caring responsibilities.

The Employment Deprivation Domain numerator was expressed as a proportion of the Employment Deprivation Domain denominator to form the Employment Deprivation Domain score. The score represents the proportion of the working-age population experiencing employment deprivation. The denominator is the working-age population (women aged 18 to 59 and men aged 18 to 64), derived from 2012 and 2013 mid-year population estimates (from the Office for National Statistics), with the prison population (from the Ministry of Justice) subtracted. In order to provide a time point which closely matches the numerator, 2012 and 2013 mid-year population estimates were used, with a weight of 0.75 applied to the 2012 count and a weight of 0.25 applied to the 2013 count.

The map below shows the relative employment deprivation deciles (using national rankings) for LSOAs in NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG. The most deprived areas (those in the most deprived 10% of LSOAs in England) are shaded dark blue. You can also change the view to show the relative deprivation deciles within the CCG itself (to identify most and least deprived small areas in the CCG) by clicking on the right hand side of the map.
