Social participation, social isolation and ethnicity

social isolationSocial participation, social isolation and ethnicity explores the extent to which social activity in England and Wales varies by ethnic group and whether risks of social isolation are higher for some groups than others.

It aims to enhance our understanding of social deprivation as a particular dimension of poverty and its variation by ethnicity. It also provides empirical evidence that informs discussions of social capital formation which focus on informal measures of participation, and amplifies our understanding of ethnic capital within groups.
