This is just a simple web page where you can download a complete, packaged QGIS project (2GB, zip file) that you can then use in QGIS to recreate the IMD 2019 maps I created for the release of the new English Indices of Deprivation on 26 September 2019. This project will allow users to recreate my maps (minus the MHCLG logo) and also edit anything they want to. You need to have experience with QGIS in order to use this project. All map layers are included in the download. Some useful information:
I wanted to bring more clarity, consistency and comparability to the mapping of this important national dataset for England, and the maps I produced are the result. I thought it would be useful to share the data and project I used to create it so that any other interested users could benefit from it. This is not an official MHCLG output, but it does allow users to recreate the IMD 2019 map outputs I created in collaboration with the team at MHCLG.
If you really get stuck with any of this, feel free to contact me (Alasdair Rae, University of Sheffield) and I'll try to help if I can. In the first instance, it's probably just best to download the entire project, unzip it and then have a play around with it.
