Indices of Deprivation 2007: Analysis of Employment Domain

About This Report:

This report, forming part of a wider body of work on the IMD 2007, provides an analysis of the Employment domain within the Indices of Deprivation (2007).

This report uses IMD data to help better understand worklessness across Leicestershire. It looks at employment deprivation between and within the county before testing the relationship between employment deprivation and other forms of deprivation measured by ID. It concludes by thinking through some of the policy implications of the IMD data in the context of Leicestershire and its Local Area Agreement (LAA) target of reducing the proportion of 16-64 year olds on out-of-work benefits from 5.6% to 3.7% by 2010/11.
