Deprivation Web Application Launched

The updated Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measures (NIMDM 2017) were published on 23 November 2017. This is the official measure of spatial deprivation in Northern Ireland. The NIMDM 2017 provide information for seven distinct types of deprivation, known as domains, along with an overall multiple deprivation measure (MDM). The NIMDM 2017 provide a mechanism for ranking areas within Northern Ireland in the order of the most deprived to the least deprived.

A new application has been developed which allows users to easily locate the Multiple Deprivation Measures (NIMDM) 2017 results at Super Output Area (SOA) Level. Simply enter the postcode into the application to return the SOA level results.

Further information on the NIMDM2017 is available on the NISRA website: Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2017 (NIMDM2017).
