These areas, which are in the Leys, 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.
