December 2012, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published a report on how public authorities in England have met their transparency obligations on equality.
The report reveals that only half of the public authorities assessed were responding fully to the requirements of the specific duty regulations1 to publish equality information such as the diversity of their staff and people who use their services.
Some of the results are encouraging – 78 per cent of authorities had taken some steps to publish equality information – but there is still a long way to go. For example, 16 per cent of public authorities had either published out of date or undated information, and six per cent hadn’t published any information at all.
