Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) brings together a range of indicators by domain at datazone geography (areas with around 700 – 1000 population) to give a picture of relative deprivation across Scotland. Within the index 56% of the weighting is given to income (28%) and employment (28%) deprivation. The latest index was published on 18 December 2012.

Employment deprivation reflects the uptake of employment related benefit for the working age population, ie unemployment claimant count, while income deprivation reflects income related benefit across the whole population, ie income support. Between 2009 and 2012, the Scottish Government published annual updates to the income and employment domains which provide a more accurate reflection of the impact of the recession. These show that Fife compares well with other areas of Scotland. Changes to the methodology used to calculate the Income domain for the 2012 index mean that the 2012 income figure is not directly comparable to the 2009, 2010 and 2011 figures. Caution should therefore be applied in drawing conclusions about absolute changes to the Income domain.
