The English Indices of Deprivation are a continuous measure of relative deprivation and there is no definitive point on the scale below which areas are considered to be deprived and above which they are not. However, it is usual to define deprived areas as those LSOAÂ¿s that are amongst the 10% most deprived in England according to the overall Index of Multiple Deprivation. In Nottinghamshire there are 31 LSOAÂ¿s in the 10% most deprived LSOAÂ¿s in England, an increase from 23 in 2007. Map 1 clearly shows that the most deprived LSOAÂ¿s are concentrated in the districts of Mansfield (12 LSOAÂ¿s), Ashfield (10), Bassetlaw (6) and Newark & Sherwood (3). There are 104 LSOAÂ¿s in the 25% most deprived LSOAÂ¿s in England, an increase from 101 in 2007.
