This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify households in England and Wales by the diversity in ethnic group of household members in different relationships. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

The information helps to provide a better understanding of communities and is used for the government-wide race equality and community cohesion strategy, which seeks to improve race equality outcomes in areas such as housing, education, health and criminal justice for all groups across society.

Similar information from the 2001 Census was provided in table UV69.

Statistical Disclosure Control
In order to protect against disclosure of personal information from the 2011 Census, there has been swapping of records in the Census database between different geographic areas, and so some counts will be affected. In the main, the greatest effects will be at the lowest geographies, since the record swapping is targeted towards those households with unusual characteristics in small areas.

More details on the ONS Census disclosure control strategy may be found on the Statistical Disclosure Control page on the ONS web site.
