Classification of household deprivation (Great Britain) 2011

Dataset population: Households

Classification of household deprivation
The dimensions of deprivation used to classify households are indicators based on four selected household characteristics. A household is deprived in a dimension if they meet one or more of the following conditions:

  • Employment: Where any member of a household, who is not a full-time student, is either unemployed or long-term sick.
  • Education: No person in the household has at least Level 2 education (see highest level of qualification), and no person aged 16 to 18 is a full-time student.
  • Health and disability: Any person in the household has general health that is 'bad' or 'very bad' or has a long-term health problem.
  • Housing: The household's accommodation is either 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.
