Looking at inequality through the IMD

Academic and our favourite blogger Alasdair Rae contrasted the concentrations of most and least deprived LSOAs in English cities to demonstrate socio-spatial inequalities – as you can see the most and least deprived areas are often clustered together.


He also created a huge infographic showing the absolute number of LSOAs in the 10% most and least deprived for all English local authorities. Few areas have an even amount of LSOAs at both extremes, with the graphic dominated by the red spikes of large deprived cities. Read the blog entries in full here and here.
