English Indices of Deprivation

Using statistics for income, employment, health, disability, crime and living standards, the UK Department for Communities and Local Government has published ranks for 32,844 areas of England by local authority according to where they stand in the 2015 national poverty league table.
While 2015 statistics are likely of limited interest for those whose ancestors left England generations ago the areas of poverty do tend to persist. 83 per cent of neighbourhoods that are the most deprived according to the 2015 Index were also the most deprived according to the 2010 Index.
Middlesbrough, Knowsley, Kingston upon Hull, Liverpool and Manchester are the local authorities with the highest proportions of neighbourhoods among the most deprived in England.
While gentrification has meant the London Boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Haringey have become relatively less deprived seven of the 10 local authority districts with the highest levels of income deprivation among older people are in London.
Delve into the statistics in depth at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/english-indices-of-deprivation-2015 and, reflect that nothing like such statistics are available in Canada owing to decisions of the Harper government.
