Working paper: levels of deprivation

Monday 3 August 2015

This working paper presents analysis of changes in rates of ‘employment deprivation’ between 2002 and 2011 was undertaken for the GoWell study areas in comparison with elsewhere in Glasgow and Scotland.

Only a marginal (one percentage point) decrease in the percentage of the population classed as ‘employment deprived’ was observed in Scotland over the time period. A slightly greater decrease occurred in Glasgow.

However, less change was observed across the different GoWell area ‘types’, suggesting that, in relative terms, the GoWell population as a whole may have become slightly more deprived than the rest of the city over the period.
