Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

This study was the fourth in a series of national surveys of ethnic minorities. The main objectives were:
  • to describe the social and economic conditions of Britain's main ethnic minority groups, including their health, and to compare these with the social and economic conditions of the white majority
  • to assess changes over time through comparisons with other work
  • to show how the position of ethnic minority groups is related to the social and ethnic compositions of the areas in which they live
  • to explore diversity among different ethnic minority groups
  • to describe perceptions and experience of racial discrimination and social harassment
Main Topics:
Topics covered include household structure, neighbourhoods and quality of housing, education, employment, health, racial harassment and discrimination, and ethnic identity.
