Ethnic migration in the UK

Supervisors: John Stillwell

The population of the UK is becoming increasingly ethnically diverse. This topic will explore the changing migration propensities and patterns of different ethnic populations within the UK, using data that come primarily from the 2001 and 2011 Censuses: Special Migration Statistics (SMS), Samples of Anonymised Records (SARs) and commissioned tables. The project will investigate questions about the role of migration in reducing the concentration of minority ethnic populations in the cities and large towns and the relationship between new immigrants of different ethnicity and those ethnic populations that have been living in the UK for several years. Analyses will be undertaken at national, regional (local authority) and local (ward or super output area) scales.
