Poverty and deprivation

The rising cost of living including food and fuel means that some communities in Derbyshire experience higher than average levels of deprivation and poverty. The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is the most commonly used measure of deprivation and the 2015 index shows there are 18 out of 491 small areas in Derbyshire that fall within the most 10% deprived areas across England. Most of these areas are located in the North East of the county in the former coalfields areas.
