Mapping Disadvantage is the first major attempt to find the ‘hot spots’ where young people are less likely to succeed and where the transition from adolescence to adulthood is most likely to be problematic. It makes a key contribution to knowledge regarding the distribution of disadvantage and is unique in its focus on young people.

Unlike other indices, this work explicitly addresses the ethnic minority dimension. This is particularly important in relation to young people given that the minority ethnic population tends to be younger than average.
