The 10% most and least deprived – Alasdair Rae

As someone who blogs about spatial analysis and deprivation we’re big fans of Alasdair Rae‘s work over here at OCSI – here’s a list of his work previously featured on this resource. At the end of last month he put out a nice deprivation map that highlights the 10% most and least deprived LSOAs in England. It’s simple and attractive and does exactly what it says on the tin – check it out here.

A national view shows the North-South divide typical of these maps: 2016-04-27 11-13-45

Zooming in on cities and towns highlights different patterns of local inequality, for example Hull has high inner-city deprivation and the least deprived areas are some distance out, being more suburban/rural: 2016-04-27 11-09-37


Finally, looking at OCSI’s home city of Brighton & Hove we see a couple cases where LSOAs in the most and least deprived 10% are direct neighbours: 2016-04-27 11-30-04


For those interested in this sort of ‘cheek by jowl’ inequality Rae has written a pretty interesting blog post locating all the places in England (there are 75 of them) where this occurs and picking out examples.
