The income domain measures the proportion of the population in an LSOA1 that live in income deprivation. The definition of low income used includes both people who are out-of-work and those who are in work but have low earnings (and who satisfy the respective means tests).
The income domain is divided into two supplementary indices - one for income deprivation affecting children and one for income deprivation affecting older people. Please see the links below for further information about these supplementary indices.
