Indices of Deprivation Map Explorer

Built in-house at DCLG, this Deprivation Map Explorer allows you to explore the 2015 Indices of Deprivation in an interactive map. You can choose the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation, or one of the individual domains. You can search the map by place name or postcode.

IMD: lookup by postcode or local authority

Two tools are available allowing you to download the 2015 English Indices of Deprivation cross-referenced with postcodes.

  • IMD postcode lookup: upload or type in a list of postcodes, and receive a download in Excel or CSV format containing deprivation data for those postcodes.
  • IMD area lookup: choose a county or district, and receive a download in Excel or CSV format containing a list of all postcodes in that area, together with corresponding deprivation data. Optionally, you can limit the results by deprivation domain, or by decile.
