Description

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) provides a relative ranking of the data zones in Scotland from 1 (most deprived) to 6,976 (least deprived) based on a weighted combination of data in the domains of Income; Employment; Health; Education, Skills and Training; Geographic Access to Services; Crime; and Housing.

Each of the domains is also ranked individually. Using the relative rankings each data zone is assigned to vigintiles, deciles and quintiles for each domain and the overall index. Decile 1, for example, contains the most deprived 10% of data zones and decile 10 contains the least deprived 10% of data zones.

When comparing results from the different versions of the SIMD it is important to take into account changes to the methodology used to construct the individual domains and the overall SIMD between the three indices. More information can be found on the Scottish Government website.

Quality Management

Further information on the background, methodology and development of the 2020 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation is available from the Scottish Government website.

Accuracy and Reliability

For some (but not all) indicators, the population of the considered age group was zero in some data zones during the time period considered, and indicator rates could not be determined.

Further information on the background, methodology and development of the 2020 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation is available from the Scottish Government website.

Coherence and Comparability

SIMD is one of four indices that cover the whole of the UK. The Scottish Index differs from the other indices in the UK by following a slightly different methodology in construction the index. Key differences include:

  • SIMD is based on data zones which are smaller geographical units compared to the Lower Super Output Areas used in the other indices
  • Different data sources and indicators are used in individual domains
Accessibility and Clarity

Other formats of the 2020 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation are available from the Scottish Government website, including interactive mapping, local and national share calculators, and postcode and data zone look-up tools.

Relevance

The 2020 Scottish Index of Deprivation combines seven different domains (aspects) of deprivation:

  • Income
  • Employment
  • Health
  • Education, Skills and Training
  • Geographic Access to Services
  • Crime
  • Housing
