Deprivation in Barnet
The Department for Communities and Local Government released an updated version of the English Indices of Deprivation 2010, which replaces the 2007 version. Deprivation data is given for all local authorities and the lower super output areas (LSOAs) into which they are divided for government statistical purposes. There are 210 LSOAs in Barnet.

This is 48 places higher than 2007 and 17 places lower than 2004. In other words, Barnet has become less deprived in relation to the rest of England over these three years.
