  • Open consultation: Ethnic disparities and inequality in the UK: call for evidence

    About this call for evidence

    We have been asked by the government to review ethnic disparities and inequality in the UK, focusing on the following 4 areas:

    • education
    • employment and enterprise
    • health
    • crime and policing

    We are looking at outcomes across the whole population.

    We know that there are ethnic disparities in educational attainment at school, in employment, in risk factors and outcomes for different health conditions, and within the criminal justice system.

    To understand why such disparities exist, and what works and what does not, we are inviting submissions of evidence to provide answers to 10 questions.
