Ethnicity and family

Family ethnicityEthnicity and family: Relationships within and between ethnic groups: An analysis using the Labour Force Survey is a report outlining the ethnic composition of families in Britain using the Labour Force Survey household data.

It explores whether adults from different ethnic groups are living with someone from the same ethnic group (co-ethnic or ‘same race’ partnerships) or are living with someone from a different ethnic group (inter-ethnic or ‘mixed race’ partnerships), or are living on their own. It also looks at the experience of children living with parents of the same or different ethnic groups (to each other and to the child).

The report was commissioned by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and was published in 2009.
