A new measure is being used to rank Toronto's neighbourhoods – the "neighbourhood equity score", which combines ratings for economic opportunity, social development, health, participation in decision-making and physical surroundings.

The new measures, released in a report on Monday, change the way Toronto's 140 neighbourhoods are evaluated by city staff when they decide where to direct services.

The new rankings are likely to set off a lively debate about the city's role in providing social services, and what areas of the city are most deserving of extra funding and attention – all against the backdrop of the fall civic election The new measures were developed in conjunction with researchers at St. Michael's Hospital's Centre for Research on Inner City Health and are adapted from work done by the World Health Organization.
