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 Parkstone is.
