Oxford City Council have published their reaction to the new Indices of Deprivation figures
The figures show that:
- Part of The Leys (Oxford 018B) and Rose Hill (Oxford 016E) are in the 10 per cent most deprived areas in the country.
- Other areas of Rose Hill (Oxford 016F) and The Leys (Oxford 018C, Oxford 017D, Oxford 018A, Oxford 017B and Oxford 017A), along with areas of Barton (Oxford 005B and Oxford 005A), are in the 20 per cent most deprived areas in the country.
- The 10 areas of the city were all within the 10 or 20 per cent most deprived areas of the country five years ago when the Government’s last Indices of Deprivation figures were released.
- Two areas of the city, part of Carfax ward and an area of Littlemore, have risen out of the 20 per cent most deprived areas since 2010.
- Areas of north Oxford, Marston, Headington and Jericho are among the 10 per cent least deprived areas in the country.
