Deprivation index

The Direction générale adjointe de la recherche, de l’évaluation et de la statistique has produced 17 statistical summaries based on Pampalon and Raymond’s material and social deprivation index. This index enables regional and local players to determine the most underprivileged areas in each of Québec’s 17 regions.

These summaries were produced in order to better support the territorial approach advocated as part of the national strategy to combat poverty and social exclusion and the accompanying action plan.

Consult the work of the Institut de la statistique du Québec, now responsible for updating the data regarding the deprivation index of regions and territories.

You may also consult the work of the public health expertise and reference centre regarding the development of the Material and Social Deprivation Index.
