'Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2015' being published on Sept 30th 2015

Good spot by Martin Yeandle, Hastings Business Connector.

The Department for Communities and Local Government will be publishing the updated Indices of Deprivation 2015, including the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) on Wednesday 30 September at 9.30am.

At that time, the publication will be available via this link which we will also make available on the BITC Connect Support Hub: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/english-indices-of-deprivation

You can register for alerts about the indices by emailing Indices.Deprivation@communities.gsi.gov.uk. An email alert will be sent to registered users on the morning of publication.

The department held a consultation in late 2014 on a modest number of proposed changes to indicators. The government response was published in March 2015 and is also available at the above link..

The work has been carried out by Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI).
