Deprivation in Scotland on Google Maps

Deprivation in Scotland 2012 is a Google Map of data from the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.

The colours on the map display each area's rank within Scotland as a whole, with the most deprived in red and the least deprived in dark blue. Using the map it is easy to spot large concentrations of areas with similar deprivation levels. A high percentage of Edinburgh's Data Zones are amongst Scotland's least deprived 20%, whereas a high percentage of Glasgow's Data Zones are amongst Scotland's most deprived 20%.
