Based on the locally preferred measure of deprivation, Hackney is the 11th most deprived local authority in England (of 326 local authorities) based on IMD2015.  On the same measure, the City of London is ranked 226 and is within the 40% least deprived local authorities in England and third least deprived in Greater London.  For further details see:

Figure 3 shows IMD2015 rankings for Hackney and the City of London, overall and across the seven domains.  The highest levels of deprivation (compared with other areas) are shown by points closest to the centre of the ‘web’.  Hackney is depicted in green and is confirmed to have among the highest levels of relative deprivation on most measures (most points converge near zero at the centre of the ‘web’) except ‘education, skills & training’ and, to a lesser extent, ‘employment’ and ‘health deprivation and disability’.

The City of London is depicted on Figure 3 in red and confirmed to have among the lowest levels of relative deprivation in the country on all measures (most points are located towards the outside edge of the ‘web’).  The two exceptions are the ‘living environment’ and ‘barriers to housing & services’ domains, where the City has comparatively high levels of deprivation, predominantly due to its central city location and densely built environment.6
