Dd101 Tma 03

Part one:
In this part of the TMA, we are asked to describe and summarise the data provided within a table from the consensus from 2001 and 2011(Office of natural statistics). The tables provided shows the population of citizens within the United Kingdom.
Table 1:
Looking at the collected data from 2001 and 2011 we can see that the single majority increase, is within the 'Other White' with a large increase of 1.8%.(2.6% in 2001 and 4.4% in 2011). Whereas the largest ethnic group increase is the 'Asian/Asian British' this has increased from 4.9% to 7.5%, with a total increase of 2.6%.   Overall every population has increased bar the 'Caribbean'   ethnic group which has stayed the same. The only population to have decreased is the Irish population which has decreased from 1.2% to 0.9%. The lowest increase is the 'white and black African' group which shows an increase of only 0.2%. The Gypsy/Irish traveler group also shows an increase of 0.1%, however this acts is deemed unreliable as there was no data recorded in the consensus of 2001.

The London area and the West Midlands have the highest percentage of 'Asian' ethnic groups compared to the remaining counties. The percentage in London is 18.5% and in the West Midlands is 10.8%. This is the highest percentage of an ethnic groups bar the 'white' ethnic group which is at its highest within Wales totalling 95.6%. From this we can see that Wales has the lowest amount of non white ethnic groups.
The 'other ethnic groups' are the lowest percentage of the population with the lowest in the South West at 0.3%.
The tables reflect the overall percentage of people living within the United Kingdom between the years of 2001 and 2011.
On observation of both the tables we can see that the patterns that emerge are that there has been a large increase of 'Asian' ethnic groups. This being...
