The Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 (IMD 2010) is a measure of multiple deprivation at the small area level, and is based on the idea of distinct dimensions of deprivation which can be recognised and measured separately. These are experienced by individuals living in an area. People may be counted as deprived in one or more of the dimensions, depending on the number of types of deprivation that they experience.
In the Hampshire County Council area the number of areas (Lower layer Super Output Areas - LSOAs - representing on average populations of 1,500), that fell in the 20% most multiple deprived areas in England rose from 27 (IMD 2007) to 31 in (IMD 2010). As the tables from the Data Tab shows, these are mostly in Havant and the four Leigh Park wards. For the wider Hampshire Economic Area the number affected rose from 86 to 96 LSOAs.

The Output Area classification (OAC) describes the character of local areas based on similar lifestyle traits. Derived from the 2011 Census theOAC has three hierarchical classifications:
Supergroups: 8 types of lifestyle ideal for broad descriptions, but limited in scope.
Groups: 26 types of lifestyle for a detailed description and the level appropriate for most analysis.
Subgroups: 76 types of lifestyles for the most detailed descriptions, but less easy to coherently analyse and with only subtle differences form parent groups.
OACis an open source geodemographics and offers a wide range of resources and tools for small area profiling. As OAC is Open Source data, it free for people to use and share (subject to copyright acknowledgement). The OAC User Group also provides a forum to share ideas and broaden the appeal of OAC.
OAC can be accessed via the two sources below. Descriptions and radial plots are also available:
