How to identify top 15% SIMD areas

SIMD logo

The Green Infrastructure Fund and Community Engagement Fund give priority to projects in the 15% most deprived areas of Scotland. It is important for applicants to use the most up-to-date rankings and information in their application and for baseline monitoring.

A common question potential applicants have asked us is "How do I find‎ out if the area is in the 15%? The map only shows 10% bands."

The answer is simple. Hovering over a data zone in the simd16 interactive map‎ brings up its stats on the right hand side of the screen. One of the figures is the overall rank. The 15% threshold is 1046.

You can find the simd16 interactive map and the latest data from Statistics Scotland on the Scottish Government website.
