Notes

Only data for pupils who attend a Glasgow school and who have a Glasgow address have been included in this. A proportion of Glasgow school pupils who live outwith the Glasgow city boundary have not been included. There are also a number of pupil addresses that were incomplete or inaccurate so were unable to be matched to a neighbourhood or SIMD decile.

 SIMD – Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation provides a relative measure of deprivation based on indicators from 7 domains – income, employment, health, education, access, housing, crime. The index identifies multiple deprivation for 6505 small areas (datazones) across Scotland.  There have been four versions of SIMD to date. The initial index of 2004 (SIMD 2004) has been revised three times in 2006 (SIMD 2006), 2009 (SIMD 2009) and 2012 (SIMD 2012).  For more information go to the SIMD site.

Deprivation deciles -  the term ‘deprivation decile’ is used to represent 10% of a population with a particular level of deprivation. Thus, the most deprived decile equates to the most deprived 10% within a population, while the least deprived decile represents the 10% of a population living in the least deprived circumstances.
