A presentation of data from the Indices of Deprivation for the North Cumbria Area
Secondary analysis of the Indices of Deprivation
Examination of higher-level data (i.e. county and district) illustrated how analyses across larger areas can obscure the existence of deprivation at the local level. As such, data for Cumbria County Council suggests it to be a relatively comfortable area with only moderate levels of deprivation. Analysis of lower-level (LSOA) data revealed a range of deprivation levels in North Cumbria and suggested some polarisation between and within LSOAs. This was apparent on the main domains for income and employment. Two domains stood out from the others due to the distribution of rankings being skewed towards most deprived; these are the domains for education, training and skills, and health deprivation and disability.
The Indices of Deprivation reveal concentrations of deprivation in North Cumbria. However, more localised, pocket deprivation is remains hidden due geographically large and polarised LSOAs.
