Abstract

Analysis of the NMDS-SC, June 2011, focusing on workers'records with valid information on both ethnicity and nationality, shows that 7.5 per cent (n=26,789) of the workforce are identified by their employers to be British BME workers. This percentage is much lower than the 19 per cent identified as belonging to BME groups without accounting for nationality. In other words, much of the data relating to BME workers may well be referring to recent migrants. Focusing on those identified as British (n=307,575), 91.3 per cent were identified as being of 'white' ethnicity and 8.7 (n=26,789) as being from BME groups.
