Pakistani women living in the UK are ‘shockingly badly integrated’, a Cabinet Office survey is set to reveal.
The findings of the UK’s first disparity audit, published in full on Tuesday, hope to shed better light on how people from different backgrounds are treated in regards to their access to healthcare, education, employment and the criminal justice system.
For women of Pakistani origin, the audit has revealed a particularly ‘shocking’ situation.
Racial divide to be exposed on new website
The extent of Britain’s racial divide will be revealed tomorrow with the launch of an official website exposing the continued inequalities among ethnic minorities in housing, work, health and life expectancy.
The site will bring together thousands of pieces of official data from across the public sector in fully searchable form for the first time.
It will also be continually updated as new information is gathered and enable pressure groups and academics to track government progress in tackling discrimination nationally and by region.
The project is thought to be the most ambitious of its type in the world.
It is expected to reveal some areas of the country where working-class white populations are at a significant social and economic disadvantage to other ethnic minority groups.
