- In terms of unemployment, the overwhelming picture is one of continuing ethnic minority disadvantage compared with the White British majority group.
- There is considerable variability in unemployment rates between places for each ethnic group, as well as between ethnic groups.
- For those in employment, at the national level ethnic minority groups are most unevenly spread across occupation types.

- In all locations, mid-skilled occupations are commonly under-represented among ethnic minority groups.
