Tma03 Part 1 Using the Data in the Table Provided, What Can You Say About the Ethnicity of the Population in the National Parks of England and Wales?

Using the data in the table provided, what can you say about the ethnicity of the population in the national parks of England and Wales? In this first part of the assignment we will be looking at the ethnic patronage of national parks in England and Wales, using the evidence provided in table 1 . This will be done by examining the quantitative data on the table and using the findings to comment on, and summarize, any anomalies or correlations found within
The first noticeable thing in the data provided, unsurprisingly, is that it comprises of a majority white British membership. There was a mean average of around 96% (95.89%) in white British participation across the national parks, with 97.3% (Snowdonia National Park) being the highest and 92.8% (South Downs National Nark) being the lowest.

The lowest of these were those who fell into the category of 'other black' at 0.02% of total visitors. The group labeled as 'African' contributed the majority of their numbers at 57% of the total with 456 visitors.
Studying the table, we can see that the park that enjoyed the most visitors was the south downs national park. This is true in the case of almost all of the ethnic groups presented, although there is one anomaly Those in the 'Asian other' category accounted for 476 visitors in south downs, however their proffered destination, with 540 visitors, appears to be the Brecon Beacons national park. This contrasts to with the rest of the groups for whom South downs national park was the most visited.
The Northumberland national park received the lowest amount of visitors over the period of 2011. It accounted for only 1993 visitors over the year (0.5% of the combined total of all the parks) of which only 16...
