Ethnic group (UK harmonised) 2011

Dataset population: Persons

Ethnic group (UK harmonised)
Ethnic group classifies people according to their own perceived ethnic group and cultural background.
Due to question and response category differences in the country-specific ethnic group question asked in the 2011 Censuses of the UK, some responses are not directly comparable. The UK output on ethnic group is therefore presented using a high-level classification as recommended by the ONS: Primary Standards for Harmonised Concepts and Questions for Social Data sources.
