Description

The employment prospects of some ethnic minorities have improved since the 1970s but still lag behind the white majority because of “persistent racism”, a major new study says.

Three researchers found that, despite progress, most ethnic minority groups studied are still more likely to be in manual work or unemployed or sick than their white counterparts.

Professor James Nazroo of The University of Manchester, alongside Dr Saffron Karlsen of the University of Bristol and Dr Neil Smith of the National Centre for Social Research, analysed national census data on more than 70,000 people in England and Wales.
