The Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) is the official measure of small area deprivation in Wales and is designed to identify those small areas where there are the highest concentrations of several types of deprivation. 


Each Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) in Wales is ranked in terms of overall deprivation as well as for several separate domains, with a rank of 1 assigned to the most deprived area. However, the rankings cannot be used to monitor change over time and are not comparable with indices produced for the other constituent countries of the UK. 


The latest Index was published in November 2014. Further information, including guidance on its use, can be found at:
