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 2006

In this publication results are given for the 15% most deprived areas and all other data zones (Rest of Scotland). The deprived areas are defined using the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation ( SIMD) 2006. Both results for 2005 and 2006 are based on the latest SIMD 2006. In last year's publication (Annual Population Survey in Scotland 2005) the 2005 results were based on the first Index ( SIMD 2004) so the results may differ from those currently published.

The SIMD 2006 is the Scottish Executive's official measure for identifying small area concentrations of multiple deprivation across all of Scotland. It is based on 37 indicators in the seven domains: Current Income, Employment, Health, Education Skills and Training, Geographic Access to Services (including public transport travel times for the first time), Housing and a new Crime Domain.

The SIMD 2006 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.
