New Research Highlights Racial Inequalities In Leicester


The University of Manchester, in association with The Runnymede Trust, has undertaken an analysis of differences in education, employment, health and housing for people of different racial origins in the district authorities of England and Wales, including Leicester.

A stark detail illustrates that, despite being more likely to have higher level qualifications, people of African, Asian or Caribbean background are more likely to be unemployed.
