Runnymede Trust briefings on ethnic inequalities – January 2017

The Runnymede Trust and the University of Manchester’s Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity published briefings on ethnic inequalities in Bristol, in Manchester, and in Barking & Dagenham in January 2017.

The research found that:

  • Black African and Caribbean adults were more likely to be unemployed in Bristol compared to the national (England and Wales) average, and the extent of inequality widened in the decade between 2001 and 2011;
  • Black African employment inequality got worse across Greater Manchester in the same decade;
  • Somali children were over 25% less likely to achieve GCSE grades A*-C in English and Mathematics in Bristol compared to the national average for Somalis;
  • Housing inequality has worsened for all BME groups in Greater Manchester over the decade.
