DatasetQS119 Households by Deprivation Dimensions (OA)
Dataset DescriptionDeprivation dimensions
The dimensions of deprivation used to classify households are indicators based on the four selected household characteristics: 

  • Employment (any member of a household not a full-time student is either unemployed or long-term sick)
  • Education (no person in the household has at least level 2 education, and no person aged 16-18 is a full-time student)
  • Health and disability (any person in the household has general health ‘bad or very bad’ or has a long term health problem), and
  • Housing (Household's accommodation is ether overcrowded, with an occupancy rating -1 or less, or is in a shared dwelling, or has no central heating).

A household is classified as being deprived in none, or one to four of these dimensions in any combination.
