This is a complex set of data drawing on many different indicators. Overall it shows that Calderdale has higher deprivation than the national average. Worryingly Calderdale is the 89th most deprived Local Authority District in England of 326 areas.

There are 19 neighbourhoods in the 10% most multiple deprived areas in England. 13 neighbourhoods in the 11-20% most multiple deprived and 14 neighbourhoods in the 21-30% most multiple deprived areas in England.

Of particular concern are the data on child poverty which shows that within Calderdale 8625 children and young people are growing up in families which are income deprived.
