NEW JSNA Bitesize giving an overview of the results of the 2019 Indices of Multiple Deprivation is now available on Oxfordshire Insight showing that...

  • Oxfordshire is the 10th least deprived of 151 upper-tier local authorities in England (similar to the rank of 11th out of 152 upper-tier LAs in 2015).

  • Since the last release in 2015, Cherwell has become relatively more deprived and Oxford has become relatively less deprived.

  • South Oxfordshire, Vale of White Horse and West Oxfordshire districts have remained similarly ranked.

  • Oxfordshire has one area within the 10% most deprived areas nationally (within Northfield Brook ward, south east Oxford), down from two areas in this decile in 2015.  The area no longer in the top 10% most deprived is part of Rose Hill & Iffley ward.

  • A further 16 areas are among the 20% most deprived nationally (compared with 13 in 2015).

  • Parts of Banbury and Littlemore ward have shown the greatest change in ranking within this group of LSOAs.
