We have used the 14 English index of deprivation statistics Lower-Super Output Areas (LSOAs) in West Heath, to provide you with an at-a-glace overview of deprivation in this area of Bexley.

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 West Heath is. Indices of Deprivation statistics and are broken down into domains of deprivation or more simply, categories.
