Ethnic diversity in neighbourhoods of England and Wales. Analysis of 2021 Census of England and Wales.


The GEDI team published the first peer-reviewed analysis of ethnic diversity and residential segregation using data from the 2021 Census of England and Wales, and compared the results for 2021 with the three previous Censuses from 2011, 2001 and 1991. We found that, increasingly, many places are most accurately described as highly ethnically diverse.
