NISRA Census 2021 data has been released in a series of waves throughout 2022 and 2023 – these have utilised the new Super Data Zone and Data Zone Geography (this replaces Super Output Areas and Output Areas).

However, the existing NISRA 2017 Multiple-Deprivation Measures have not been updated as yet, and this work is not planned to be completed in the near future.

As such the existing MDM 2017 data represent the most up to date information on deprivation in NI.
Alternatively, individual data sets from the Census 2021 such as Economic Activity, Health, Environment and Education are all available here.

You can build your own tables or access ready made tables given the length of time since the MDM work was completed.

Updated Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measures were released on Thursday 23rd November, 2017, by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA).  These measures are known as NIMDM 2017.

A summary of the NIMDM 2017 data, pertinent to Derry City and Strabane District Council, can be found in the three documents below.

  • In-depth analysis of deprivation domains and indicators can be found within the document detailing Super Output Area data. 
  • Rankings of Small Areas, within deprivation domains, can be found in the document detailing Small Area data.
  • Rankings of Wards, within deprivation domains, can be found in the document detailing Ward data.
