The Association of Public Health Observatories publishes data on IDACI child deprivation scores for local areas in England. IDACI stands for the Income Domain Affecting Children Index and is defined as the percentage of children aged 0-15 living in income-deprived households.

Families are classed as income-deprived if they are in receipt of income support, income based jobseekers allowance or pension credit, or child tax credit with an equivalised income (excluding housing benefits) below 60% of the national median before housing costs.

Excel spreadsheet data showing IDACI scores is available for:

  • Middle Layer Super Output Areas within local authorities
  • Local authorities as a whole
  • Counties
  • Primary care trusts (PCTs)
  • Strategic health authorities; and for
  • The former government office regions and for England as a whole.
