A presentation series by CPAG & Associate Professor Dan Exeter and co-hosted by PHA Otago Southland branch with guest speaker Jordana Whyte from Cosy Homes
The New Zealand Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is a set of tools for identifying
concentrations of deprivation in New Zealand. It measures deprivation at the
neighbourhood-level in data zones custom-designed to produce better small area
information without losing their contents to suppression or confidentiality. The IMD
comprises 28 indicators grouped into seven domains of deprivation: Employment,
Income, Crime, Housing, Health, Education and Access to services, which may be
used individually or in combination to explore the geography of deprivation and its
association with a given health or social outcome. Associate Professor Dan Exeter,
who co-developed the IMD, will discuss its development, how it compares to NZDep,
and demonstrate the different ways in which the IMD and its domains can be used to
better understand the drivers of deprivation within the Dunedin area. Dan will also discuss the potential for the IMD to inform health and social policy.
