Our neighbourhood rating is based on a combination of the rural/urban-ness of a place (urban = worse in terms of risk) and the Index of Multiple Deprivation – we compile this information from the official statistical bodies linked below.
Please note that even “reasonably affluent” areas can score fairly low on the index of multiple deprivation – it’s not making a judgement on your wealth or delightful street – it’s more an indication of the range in the area.

Help us improve this rating
Wrisk isn’t like a normal insurance service – we are always learning and that includes improving the way we assess risk. If you think this Wrisk Factor should be rated differently – please tell us why.
If your feedback results in a rateable change that can be validated as truly predictive by our actuaries and data-scientists – we’ll reward you with an instant credit to your Wrisk balance and/or some Wrisk swag! 😁
Please remember that the validation process can take some time as we need to correlate stuff against historic claims information. Also – evidence with data beats opinions every time.
