The All-Island HP Deprivation Index is a joint project that has been developed by Trutz Haase and Dr Jonathan Pratschke in collaboration with the International Centre for Local and Regional Development (ICLRD) and the All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) at Maynooth University. This project has been part financed by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government (DELCG) and by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.

This study presents an area-based deprivation measure for the island of Ireland based on the 2011 Census. Conceptually, it builds on the study undertaken by the authors in 2011 (Haase, Pratschke and Gleeson, 2012), which used small area (SA) data from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to construct a prototype of an all-island deprivation index. The new index is made possible by recent developments in data availability and harmonisation.
