The Scottish index of multiple deprivation is a tool used by local authorities, the Scottish government, the NHS and other government bodies in Scotland.

A version was issued in 2016.

The Scottish index of multiple deprivation measures across seven domains: current income, employment, health, education, skills and training, housing, geographic access and crime.

The principle behind the index is to target government action in the areas which need it most.
