Scotland's Most Deprived Areas
The most deprived area in Scotland is Ferguslie Park in Paisley. Glasgow continues to the most deprived city. Nearly half of Glasgow's neighbourhoods are in the bottom 20% of deprived areas.
The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2016 allows you to explore the most and least deprived areas in all of Scotland on an interactive map. The map shows the most deprived areas in red and the least deprived in blue. If you just want to find the most deprived neighbourhoods in your area then you can use the buttons in the map menu to display only the Most Deprived 20%, the Most Deprived 10% or the Most Deprived 5%.
If you hover over an area on the map you can also find out how the neighborhood ranks in each of the Index's standards. These standards measure deprivation indicators such as income, employment, crime and health.
