Summary


The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) commissioned this paper as part of its programme on poverty and ethnicity which aims to understand the underlying reasons for variations in low income and deprivation among different ethnic groups in the UK and the problems caused. It also aims to contribute towards solutions to these problems.
This paper:
considers the extent of economic inequality within and between ethnic groups;
examines the relationship between economic inequality within ethnic groups and poverty rates across ethnic groups; and
discusses the implications of a better understanding of inequality within ethnic groups for analysis of, and approaches to, ethnic minority poverty.
