Deprivation: data

Deprivation profiles, which provide data on health outcomes and determinants for each SIMD 2012 quintile (1=most deprived, 5=least least), for all health boards and local authorities within Scotland, are available in the profiles pages.

In addition, deprivation related tables and graphs appear throughout this site within topic pages e.g. physical activity, deaths, etc. For further information on how deprivation is related to a specific topic, please go to the data section for that topic.

Chart 1 (view chart) shows the how the 15% most deprived datazones in Scotland are distributed across the 32 local authorities. Glasgow City contains nearly a third (30.6%) of the 15% most deprived datazones. Four local authorities (Eilean Siar, Moray, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands) have none of their population living in the 15% most deprived datazones.

Chart 2 (view chart) shows the proportion of the datazones within each local authority that are within the 15% most health deprived datazones in Scotland. At one extreme, 44.2% of datazones in Glasgow City and 36.8% in Inverclyde are within the 15% most deprived datazones in relation to health. By contrast, Orkney, Shetland, Eilean Siar, East Lothian and Moray have none of their datazones in the 15% most health deprived.
