English Indices of Deprivation statistical comparisons for Lower-Super Output Areas in Handsworth, Birmingham, West Midlands

We have used the 13 English index of deprivation statistics Lower-Super Output Areas (LSOAs) in Handsworth, to provide you with an at-a-glace overview of deprivation in this area of Birmingham. We have combined these statitics into an English ward level, as most people are familiar with this geospacial area in their town or city. Here are those 13 marked on a map:

Each area has its own decile score. This is where each LSOA in England is ranked according to the level of deprivation and split into 10 equal groups. A decile score of 1 means the area is in the top 10% of deprived areas, 2 is equal to the top 20% and so forth. To simply these scores and apply them to a ward, we have created the iLiveHere rating. This takes the average decile score of all the LSOAs in a ward and converts that into a rating out of 10, where 1 is the best and 10 is the worst. We have then used to traffic light colour system as an at-a-glance reference. As you scroll down this page, the more red ratings you see, the more deprived Handsworth is.
