Indices of Deprivation 2010
The English Indices of Deprivation 2010 (ID 2010) were published by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) on 24 March 2011. They represent the third release in a series of statistics produced to measure various forms of relative deprivation at a local level, providing an update to the Indices of Deprivation 2004 and 2007.
As with the previous Indices, ID 2010 is measured at the geographical level of Lower layer Super Output Area (LSOA), each of which contained a population of about 1,500 residents at the time of the 2001 Census. There are 32,482 LSOA's throughout England, of which 104 are within Basingstoke and Deane.
For each LSOA, ten indices are produced: apart from the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD 2010), there are seven domain indices (from which the IMD is constructed), covering income; employment; health and disability; education, skills and training; barriers to housing and services; crime; and the living environment; as well as two supplementary indices, covering income deprivation affecting children and older people respectively.
The Indices have been mapped against the borough's wards as they have existed since May 2008. A spreadsheet showing the levels of deprivation in each LSOA within Basingstoke and Deane relative to the results throughout England can be accessed below. It must be stressed that whilst referred to as the Indices of Deprivation 2010, most of the data relates to 2008, just as ID 2007 used data mainly from 2005.
In addition to the LSOA level analysis, six summary measures are provided at local authority level, each focusing on a different aspect of multiple deprivation. On three of these six measures, Basingstoke and Deane remains within the least deprived 20% of local authorities; likewise, within the 'Rank of Local Concentration', which identifies 'hot spots' of deprivation, the borough remains within the 30% least deprived; and on both 'Rank of Income Scale' and 'Rank of Employment Scale', it remains within the 50% least deprived.

Hampshire County Council has also published a report analysing spatial patterns of deprivation within Hampshire and the two Local Enterprise Partnerships which cover the County and adjoining areas: 2010 Indices of Deprivation Hampshire Report
