Document title

Creating small area measures of urban deprivation

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Using a case study of Bristol, England, the AA. develop an analysis around Gordon and Forrest's Breadline Britain indicator in order to reveal the diversity of economic conditions that exist within wards that might be labelled as either affluent or deprived. The AA. argue that adequate representation of diversity requires a greater sensitivity to difference at fine scales. In this context, they begin to evaluate the claims of marketeers who use commercial sources of data to model incomes at unit postcodes and even household scales. The results suggest some potential for using unconventional sources of data to freshen up census information and provide direct measures of deprivation
