Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation
The Scottish Government website states that "the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2006 combines 37 indicators across 7 domains, namely: current income, employment, health, education, skills and training, housing, geographic access and crime."
The principle behind the index is to target government action in the areas which need it most.
