Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2016: introductory booklet
An update to the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD).

SIMD identifies deprived areas - not people. The box below shows why.
In this example, 'deprived' means among the 15% most deprived in Scotland.
We are using income deprived people as a proxy for people who are facing multiple deprivation.
