The census data from which deprivation payments have been calculated since June 1995 suffer from limitations including underenumeration ; under counting of homeless people and refugees, and artefactual errors because of the way in which the 1991 census data were tabulated.
These limitations reduced the fairness of the changes that many practices experienced in their deprivation payments.
The validity of the current system of deprivation payments would be improved if these limitations were borne in mind when allocating payments to practices and if enumeration districts were used as the basis of payments rather than electoral wards.
