Abstract

This paper describes the results of applying a spatial microsimulation approach to the estimation of small area (LSOA) income deprivation for Wales for 2005 using the Census 2001 and the FRS 2003/4 and 2004/5. The indicators used are the proportion of households in each LSOA whose equivalised household income was below 60% of the Welsh median equivalised household income in the appropriate year. The adjusted OECD scale was used to calculate equivalised income before (BHC) and after (AHC) housing costs and the results for these two variants are presented together with estimates of the % of children who are living in ‘poor’ households in each LSOA.
