*Note: These figures excludes projects which were recommended for funding and then withdrawn - which were in Glasgow (4), Scottish Borders (1) and South Lanarkshire (1).

Note: The local and national share of deprivation is based on Scottish Government analysis of the 2016 SIMD. The local share takes all of the datazones within that local authority and illustrates what proportion of these datazones are in the 20% most deprived areas of Scotland. The national share takes the 20% most deprived datazones in Scotland, and illustrates what proportion fall into each local authority. Local share may be a better indication of how deprived areas are relative to one another, as national share in part reflects the size of the local authority.

The analysis shows that some of the areas with the largest national or local share of datazones in areas of multiple deprivation received the largest shares of RCGF. However, there is not a direct correlation. Some areas with relatively low levels of spatially concentrated multiple deprivation also received relatively high levels of RCGF funding. Not all people and communities experiencing disadvantage live in spatially concentrated areas of high multiple deprivation. For example, two thirds of income deprived households do not live in the most deprived areas[20]. Some of these local authority areas were in areas facing other types of disadvantage – for example in fragile, remote and rural communities.

This analysis is provided to provide an indication of the correlation between local authorities with high levels of deprivation, and level of RCGF award. It should be noted that disadvantage is a wider concept than deprivation, and that not all people and communities experiencing disadvantage live in areas of high multiple deprivation.
