These data were obtained from the 2001 Census, Key Statistics. This table provides information in numbers and percentages on population by Ethnic groups.
The Ethnic Group question records each person’s perceived ethnic group and cultural background. Although the question varied in different parts of the UK, the same detailed codes were used to code the write-in responses. In standard output the most detailed classification used is 16 groups (England and Wales), 14 groups (Scotland) and 12 groups (Northern Ireland).
The confidentiality of personal Census information is paramount, and disclosure protection measures are used to prevent the inadvertent disclosure of information about identifiable individuals.
