Deprivation vs Political Representation dataset

Over the last couple of weeks we have been putting together data on local political representation and deprivation at a Local Super Output Area level. This data is put together using LSOA 2011 to Ward to Local Authority District 2016 with the English Indices of Deprivation 2015 Lookup in England from the Office of National Statistics and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government respectively, and local councillor affiliation data manually entered from the 326 council tax and business rates raising local authorities of England.

The open data can be found here and we will update it after the local elections in May – please read the README before using.
