Deprivation in English constituencies, 2015

This paper presents deprivation statistics for parliamentary constituencies in England. Estimates have been calculated by the House of Commons Library using data published by the Department for Communities and Local Government in the English Indices of Deprivation 2015 (largely based on data for 2012/13).

• There are concentrations of deprivation in the former Metropolitan Counties, coastal areas and parts of East London.
• 356 out of 533 constituencies in England contain at least one small area that is among the 10% most deprived in England.
• Comparing the 2015 figures with the 2010 Indices of Deprivation, constituencies that have become relatively more deprived include many constituencies in the East of England and Kent, while many constituencies in London are relatively less deprived.
