Understanding Multiple Deprivation presentation to CPAG Nelson by Associate Professor Dan Exeter

On April 12, the Nelson CPAG group held a presentation about how multiple deprivation impacts on the Nelson-Tasman region, with guest speaker Dr Dan Exeter, an academic from the School of Population Health at the University of Auckland, and key member of the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). The New Zealand Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is a set of tools for identifying concentrations of deprivation in New Zealand. Dr Exeter spoke about the development of the IMD, how it compares to NZDep and the different ways in which the IMD and its domains can be used to better understand the drivers of deprivation within the Nelson-Tasman area.
