Ethnic Minorities


Overview

London is the most ethnically diverse city in the UK. Census 2001 population figures suggest that:

  • 40% of Londoners belong to a minority ethnic group, including the White Other and White Irish groups.
  • The White Other (8%), Indian (6%), Black African (5%) and Black Caribbean (5%) groups are the largest in London.
  • With the exception of the Pakistani group, London has the largest population from all ethnic minority groups out of all regions of England.
  • There are wide differences in the proportion of the population from an ethnic minority group in different London boroughs, ranging from 71% in Brent to 8% in Havering.

For information on the health of ethnic minority groups please see the Health of Ethnic Minority Groups page.

Below are some datasets containing information on the population characteristics of people from ethnic minority groups.
