Annex D - Geography Classifications

In this year's publication the geography breakdown has been extended to include results by deprivation and urban/rural areas.

Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2004

In this publication results are given for the 15% most deprived areas and the rest of Scotland. The deprived areas are defined using the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation ( SIMD) 2004.

The SIMD 2004 is the Scottish Executive's official measure for identifying small area concentrations of multiple deprivation across all of Scotland. It is based on 31 indicators in the individual domains of Current Income, Employment, Housing, Health, Education, Skills & Training and Geographic Access to Services & Telecommunications.

The SIMD 2004 provides a relative ranking of small areas across Scotland allowing the most deprived areas to be identified. The Index is based on the small area statistical geography of datazones which contain on average 750 people. There are 6,505 datazones covering the whole of Scotland which nest within local authority boundaries. They are built from groups of Census output areas and designed to have populations of between 500 and 1,000 household residents.

In this publication results are given for the 15% most deprived datazones and all other datazones (Rest of Scotland).
