According to the latest Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD 2019), relative multiple deprivation has risen in East Sussex since 2015, although East Sussex has a lower proportion of LSOAs in the most and least deprived decile compared to the national average. A new briefing on the Indices of Multiple Deprivation is now available.

Households in East Sussex earning more than £150,000 per year use more than twice as much energy per household (6,502 kwH) than those households with more average incomes (£20-29,999 per year – 2,920 kwH) in 2017.

In 2018/19, 3,029 East Sussex households approached their local authority because they were homeless or threatened with homelessness, who then assessed them to see if they were owed a prevention or relief duty under new homelessness legislation.  297 households who were owed a Main Duty were offered social housing.

At 511 per week, earnings for full-time jobs in East Sussex were 14% lower than in England as a whole in 2019. Workplace pay fell by 3%, from 525pw in 2018.
