EHRC research on ethnicity and family

‘Ethnicity and family – Relationships within and between ethnic groups’ by Lucinda Platt was published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission on 19 January 2009.

The paper outlines the ethnic composition of families in Britain today using the Labour Force Survey household data. The research shows a new and growing diversity among the young. Almost 20 per cent of children under the age of 16 are from an ethnic minority and nearly ten per cent of children live in a family with a multiple white, black or Asian heritage.
