Ethnic Groups

Ethnic Groups

Large-scale surveys like the Health Survey for England show that BME groups as a whole are more likely to report ill-health, and that ill-health among BME people starts at a younger age than in the White British. There is more variation in the rates of some diseases by ethnicity than by other socio-economic factors.

However, patterns of ethnic variation in health are extremely diverse, and inter-link with many overlapping factors. Postnote – Ethnicity & Health, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, Jan 2007, No. 276
