  • 2011 Census analysis: Ethnicity and the Labour Market, England and Wales (Latest release)

    Article | Released on 13 November 2014

    This is new analysis that looks at ethnicity in the labour market in England and Wales. It begins by looking at the position of the five broad ethnic groups (employment and inactivity rates) in the labour market over time in England and Wales from 2001 to 2014 using data from the Labour Force Survey. It then uses 2011 Census data to undertake a more detailed cross sectional analysis using the full 18 ethnic group classification. It examines economic activity (employment, unemployment and economic inactivity) and characteristics of employment (occupation, industry and employment patterns) looking at male and female differences. It also explores young people (aged 16 -24) in the labour market.

  • 2011 Census analysis: What does the 2011 Census tell us about the characteristics of Gypsy or Irish travellers in England and Wales? (Latest release)

    Article | Released on 21 January 2014

    We explore characteristics of the Gypsy and Irish Traveller community for the first time, based on data from the 2011 Census. Analysis is focused on qualifications, economic activity, family relationships, health and accommodation. These characteristics are also compared with other ethnic groups and the population as a whole. In the 2011 Census, 58,000 people identified themselves as Gypsy or Irish Traveller, accounting for just 0.1% of the resident population of England and Wales.

  • Ethnicity and National Identity in England and Wales: 2011 (Latest release)

    Article | Released on 11 December 2012

    We focus on the increasing ethnic diversity within England and Wales. Whilst the majority of the population gave their ethnic group as “White” in the 2011 Census, results from the past 20 years show a decrease, falling from 94.1% in 1991 down to 86% in 2011. London was found to be the most ethnically diverse area, while Wales was the least diverse.
