Deprivation Statistics for Victoria, Somerset West and Taunton

English Indices of Deprivation statistical comparisons for Lower-Super Output Areas in Victoria, Somerset West and Taunton, Somerset

We have used the 6 English index of deprivation statistics Lower-Super Output Areas (LSOAs) in Victoria, to provide you with an at-a-glace overview of deprivation in this area of Somerset West and Taunton. 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 6 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 Victoria is. Indices of Deprivation statistics and are broken down into domains of deprivation or more simply, categories. These category scores are combined using a percentage weighting to give a an LSOA its final indices of deprivation score, decile and rank:

  • Income Deprivation (22.5%)
  • Employment Deprivation (22.5%)
  • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation (13.5%)
  • Health Deprivation and Disability (13.5%)
  • Crime (9.3%)
  • Barriers to Housing and Services (9.3%)
  • Living Environment Deprivation (9.3%)
Below we have split the Living Environment Deprivation category into its sub-categories. We think having individual iLiveHere ratings for Inside Environment and Outside Environment provides a better insight to the housing quality and outside space in Victoria. However, the Living Environment Deprivation decile is used for the overall ward iLiveHere rating.
