The report looks into the various drivers of social exclusion amongst older people (although many of these indicators are equally relevant amongst all age groups) and attempts to identify areas in London where susceptibility is particularly high. Six key drivers have been included with various indicators used in an attempt to measure these.

The majority of these indicators are at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level  in an effort to identify areas at as small a geography as possible.
