An Infographic has been produced by The Corporate GIS and Information team to show the initial findings for Newham click here to read.

As far as is possible, each indicator is based on data from the most recent time point available; in practice most indicators relate to the tax year 2015/16. It is important to note that these statistics are a measure of relative deprivation, not affluence, and to recognise that not every person in a highly deprived area will themselves be deprived. Likewise, there will be some deprived people living in the least deprived areas.
