Small Area Indices of Multiple Deprivation in South Africa
Noble, Michael; Barnes, Helen; Wright, Gemma; Roberts, Benjamin
Social Indicators Research, v95 n2 p281-297 Jan 2010
This paper presents the Provincial Indices of Multiple Deprivation that were constructed by the authors at ward level using 2001 Census data for each of South Africa's nine provinces. The principles adopted in conceptualising the indices are described and multiple deprivation is defined as a weighted combination of discrete dimensions of deprivation. The methodological approach used is outlined and key findings are presented for one province--the Eastern Cape. The paper summarises the ways in which the research is being developed further and the potential uses of these tools for policy and research.
