Demographic
 
In June 2003, Government launched Neighbourhood Renewal - People and Place.  Neighbourhoods in the most deprived 10% of wards across Northern Ireland were identified using the Noble Multiple Deprivation Measure.  Following extensive consultation, this resulted in a total of 36 areas, and a population of approximately 280,000 (one person in 6 in Northern Ireland), being targeted for intervention. The areas include:
  • 15 in Belfast
  • 6 in the North West (including four in the city of Derry/Londonderry)
  • 15 in other towns and cities across Northern Ireland
