Introduction to The 2011 Pobal HP Deprivation Index

This presentation highlights some of the more technical issues in the construction of the 2006 and 2011 Pobal HP Deprivation Index for Small Areas (SA) and is aimed at the more statistically-minded reader.

At the level of the individual indicator variables, the presentation includes:

The transformation of the 2006 indicator variables

The transformation of the 2011 indicator variables

A comparison of the 2006 and 2011 indicator variables

At the level of the new Pobal HP Deprivation Index, the presentation includes:

The change in the 2006-2011 Absolute Index Scores

The change in the 2006-2011 Relative Index Scores


The 2011 pobal hp deprivation index for small areas sa statistical features

The Underlying Dimensions of Social Disadvantage

  • Demographic Decline(predominantly rural)

    • population loss and the social and demographic effects of emigration (age dependency, low education of adult population)

  • Social Class Deprivation(applying in rural and urban areas)

    • social class composition, education, housing quality

  • Labour Market Deprivation(predominantly urban)

    • unemployment, lone parents, low skills base

The transformation of indicator variables

The Transformation of Indicator Variables

When deriving composite indicators for multi-dimensional concepts, like deprivation, it is common practice to transform the individual indicator variables to normalise their distribution prior to model estimation

The most common transformations include:

truncation - to avoid the undue influence of extreme outliers

zero-centering – to eliminate unwanted trend influences

logarithmic – to normalise a skewed distribution

The transformation of scaled variables does not affect the order of observations

The overall emphasis on deriving true measures for the composite index as a distance from the mean is thereby maintained, whilst avoiding that this is unduly influenced by a small number of extreme observations
