The New Zealand Socioeconomic Deprivation Index measures deprivation by neighbourhood. Census data is used to create a socio-economic decile scale from 1 (least deprived) to 10 (most deprived). Sometimes this scale is compressed into quintiles (1 to 5). Tools like this help public health professionals and district health boards to appropriately distribute health funds and resources. This map shows deprivation in New Zealand by decile scale in 2013.
