Deprivation Indicators (Peterborough)

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which local authority wards in the Peterborough city council area are in the top 30 per cent. of wards in England by multiple deprivation indicators; and if she will make a statement. (76624)

The Indices of Deprivation 2004 (ID 2004) were constructed at Super Output Area (SOA) level rather than ward level to overcome problems associated with frequently changing ward boundaries and lack of consistency in population size. SOAs are a better measure as they are consistent in size and overtime, and they allow better identification of small pockets of deprivation. There are 32,482 SOAs in England, each with an average population of 1,500 people.

The ID 2004 ranks areas according to their level of deprivation, relative to other areas in the country. Peterborough City has 42 per cent. of its 104 SOAs among the 30 per cent. most deprived SOAs in England. The following table lists these SOAS and identifies the wards in which they are located. There are three wards (Central, East and North) in which all the SOAs fall within the 30 per cent. most deprived in the country.
