Ludi Simpson and Stephen Jivraj give a talk for the COMPAS Breakfast Briefing series.

The 2011 Census updates our knowledge about ethnic inequalities in work, housing, education, health and residential patterns. The first results have confirmed the growing ethnic diversity of the UK population, a spreading out of minority populations, and more mixed ethnicity within families and households. For the first time the Census has asked questions on language proficiency and national identity. What does this new information mean for integration of immigrants and their offspring into the communities where they settle? How can the information help to target areas and populations to improve integration? Which trends suggest new contexts for policy? The briefing will give an overview distinguishing sure from tentative interpretations.
