3. Due to the way Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation ( SIMD) is constructed the differences in absolute rates of deprivation measures are not even between each decile (10% group). The absolute rates of people and households experiencing, for example, income poverty, are very much higher in the first decile than the second, and much higher in the second than the third. The absolute difference in poverty rates and unemployment between the sixth and seventh deciles, for example, is much less. Neighbourhoods in the top 10% and top 20% most deprived are very much "worse" than the rest. The 15% most deprived neighbourhoods are often picked out in Scottish Government policy analysis, although deciles are used here as they are consistently available in different data sets.

5. For comparison, in England in 2004/05, a majority of new social housing was delivered through the equivalent planning mechanism, Section 106, rather than by grant or other means. See Crook et al (2006) Delivering affordable housing through Section 106: outputs and outcomes. JRF.
