Sorting your searches by deprivation data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS)
This feature is now available and automatically included in our latest version.
This feature is most useful should you need to send invites in batches because your search has many patients - for example weight management or NHS Health Check searches.
Clicking on either header will sort the search by the score and enable you to prioritise those in the highest deciles for either overall deprivation or just health deprivation.
How the scores are calculated by ONS and what they represent
Decile 1 represents the most deprived and Decile 10 represents the least deprived.
A decile is 10% therefore decile 1 represents the most deprived 10% (or decile) of small areas in England and decile 10 represents the least deprived 10% (or decile) of small areas in England.
A small area is not necessarily a single postcode and the scoring index never represents the deprivation score of an individual.
The Deprivation Decile column is an overall ONS scoring covering the following domains and weights for each:
• Income Deprivation (22.5%)
• Employment Deprivation (22.5%)
• Education, Skills and Training Deprivation (13.5%)
• Health Deprivation and Disability (13.5%)
• Crime (9.3%)
• Barriers to Housing and Services (9.3%)
• Living Environment Deprivation (9.3%)
The Health Decile column solely covers Health Deprivation and Disability.
