Poverty and deprivation statistics

  • The Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 ranks Oxford 131st out of 354, placing it in the top half most deprived local authority areas in England.  A refresh of the Indices of Deprivation is due in September 2015.  
  • Of 85 areas in Oxford, 12 are among the 20% most deprived areas in England. These areas, which are in the Leys, Littlemore, Rose Hill and Barton areas of the city, experience multiple levels of deprivation - low skills, low incomes and relatively high levels of crime.
  • The 2008/09 recession caused a rise in unemployment which was particularly acute amongst low income groups and deprived areas.  For more information see our economic statistics.
  • Men and women living in relatively deprived areas have a shorter life expectancy than those living in the least deprived areas.  For more information see our health statistics page.
