Abstract

This paper seeks to provide further evidence about ‘league table’ orderings for deprivation in local areas, especially for two domains – employment and education – which seem likely to be closely related. Rather than relying solely on administrative Local Authority areas and functional economic areas, our focus is to refine the concentric banding approach introduced in Nolan et al. (Local Economy 27(4): 403–418, 2012), and to apply it throughout England. We also introduce two new procedures by which areas might be systematically split into smaller components. The spatial distributions of employment and education deprivation turn out to be quite different (and distinct from the spatial distribution of overall deprivation). Throughout, there is clear evidence that it matters what size of local area is considered.
