Data has been collected from the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) which was most recently updated in September 2019.

The IMD is the official measure of deprivation in England. The IMD combines information about seven different types of deprivation to produce an overall relative measure of deprivation. In the IMD 2019, there are 39 datasets (indicators) organised into the seven domains of deprivation.

The IMD measures deprivation for small areas named Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs). Each LSOA is estimated to contain around 650 households and can span over a few geographically close streets. These areas are ranked with a number to measure deprivation, with 1 being the most deprived.

The following 20 are the most deprived LSOAs in Leeds and are in the most deprived 10% of all LSOAs in the country.They have also been ranked according to their deprivation ranking in Leeds, beginning with the most deprived.

Full statistics for Leeds and further information about the IMD can be found on the Leeds Observatory.
