IMD package provides easy access to the Indices of Multiple
Deprivation for the UK’s nations at various geographical levels:
You can install the development version from GitHub with:
# install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("matthewgthomas/IMD")
IMD package provides several datasets for the IMD in each UK
We have also included the composite 2020 UK Index of Multiple Deprivation produced by mySociety, allowing comparison of deprivation across UK nations. For more information about how and when to use this version of the IMD, see their README.
Rather than providing a copy of this data, the
IMD package loads the
data hosted on mySociety’s GitHub. To load these files, run the
imd_uk <- load_composite_imd(nation = "E")
This function defaults to loading the England-focused composite index;
nation parameter to the first letter of one of the devolved
UK nations to load the other versions.
How many wards in Wales are there with the 100% of the population living in areas classified as among the most deprived?
library(IMD) imd_wales_ward |> dplyr::filter(Extent == 1) |> dplyr::count() #> # A tibble: 1 x 1 #> n #> <int> #> 1 14
