Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2017

Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2017 (NIMDM2017)

Measures that describe the spatial distribution of deprivation or disadvantage have been developed and used by Government and others in Northern Ireland since the 1970s. They have played a pivotal role in both informing the targeting of resources to the most deprived areas in Northern Ireland and monitoring the spatial impact of policy interventions.

The updated Multiple Deprivation Measures (NIMDM2017) replace the NIMDM 2010 as the official measure of deprivation in Northern Ireland.
