Poverty and ethnicity: A review of evidence
A review of evidence on the links between poverty and ethnicity.
This Round-up summarises the results of scoping work on how poverty and ethnicity interact, prior to the launch of a major new programme of work on the subject.
The research focused on:
- the three main areas affecting experiences of poverty – education, work and unpaid caring;
- how social networks and place shape experiences and opportunities;
- inequality within ethnic minority groups
It identifies key gaps where greater understanding could support more effective action on poverty across different ethnicities. The research also included qualitative research with a number of communities to understand their day-to-day experiences.
