Deprivation can have a profound effect on health and wellbeing throughout life.  Men living in the most affluent areas of Kent can expect to live around seven years longer than those living in the most deprived areas.

Data and reports

Analysis by deprivation can be found throughout our Health and Social Care Maps.

Almost all of the data and reports we produce contain some level of analysis by deprivation.

The new English indices of deprivation 2015 (IMD) were published on 30 September 2015, replacing the 2010 indices. We have produced preliminary analysis focussing on the extent to which IMD 2015 rankings differ from the IMD 2010 rankings (PDF, 689.8 KB).

We have conducted an analysis of the nature of health inequalities in Kent.  This analysis was used to inform the 2015 Public Health Annual Report (PDF, 3.6 MB).  We have also contributed to published work on social gradients in health and social care costs.

Library services

The Public Health and Social Care Library can provide access to library and knowledge services, including books and journal articles relating to deprivation and health. We can also produce bespoke literature searches.


If you can't find what you were looking for, we complete over 200 ad-hoc requests for analysis each year. Request further analysis or a literature search or contact us.
