Research on ethnic inequality in Islington


The Runnymede Trust released their latest research on ethnic inequality in London, which includes profiles for every London borough.

The report compares outcomes for different ethnic groups relative to the White British population in four indicators; education, health, employment and housing.

Some of the key findings from the report are:

  • Ethnic inequalities are persistent and widespread in London, particularly in employment and housing.
  • Ethnic minorities experience disadvantage in employment in every borough in London.
  • Highest unemployment figures were found in the Black African, Black Caribbean and Bangladeshi groups.
  • The greatest health inequalities were found in the Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Mixed groups. Chinese, White Other and Black African groups tend to have better health outcomes than White British people.
