Huge effect of ethnicity on life chances revealed in official United Kingdom figures

The Tory MP told Radio 4′s Today programme: "I think there will be people out there today taking note of this, whether they are from black, minority ethnic backgrounds or not, and thinking this is exactly the kind of thing they want their government to do".

But critics of the Prime Minister have accused her of using the data for "political point scoring".

An investigation into racial inequality in the United Kingdom has revealed sweeping disparities between ethnic minorities and White Britons.

■ Of all applicants shortlisted for NHS jobs in England, white candidates were more likely to be appointed - some 18 per cent of whites shortlisted got the job compared with 11 per cent of ethnic minorities.

The figures reflect that unemployment for black and minority ethnic people is at almost double that of white Britons and massive disparities exist in terms of home ownership across the country.

She called for the government to start offering solutions to the problems the audit highlighted.

By contrast, poor white children at state schools do worse at key stage 2 than children from any...

In future prisons will have to publish figures showing the outcomes for inmates from different ethnic groups.

The figures on hourly earnings show that a year ago, the average white worker made £13.75 with black Britons earning £11.88 and workers of Pakistani or Bangladeshi origin on £11.42.

Marsha Blackburn demands Twitter apologize for trying to 'censor' pro-life ad
Is this the only instance of Twitter blocking pro-life ads? "It's something that people wanted to see shut down". The decision does not prevent the original video from being posted by Blackburn and others on Twitter.

And white people are significantly more likely to struggle with suicidal thoughts, with 21.6 per cent saying they have considered killing themselves compared to just 13.1 per cent of Asians.

The new site, available later today, contains thousands of statistics covering more than 130 topics in areas including employment, health, education, and criminal justice.

The audit also found as part of the survey conducted over 2016 that adults from an Indian background reported the highest average ratings out of 10 for life satisfaction and were not only most likely to be employed but also recorded the highest average hourly pay while in employment.

"People who have lived with discrimination don't need a government audit to make them aware of the scale of the challenge", May will say according to extracts of remarks due to be delivered at a launch event on Tuesday.

It examines how people of different races and backgrounds are treated in British society - particularly in relation to public services.

She will say "these issues are now out in the open" and that the collection of data provides "definitive evidence" of the challenges the United Kingdom still faces to "build a country that works for everyone".

The U.K. premier said the audit would become an "essential resource in the battle to defeat ethnic injustice".

'Britain has come along way in promoting equality and opportunity but what the data we've published today shows is that we still have a way to go if we are going to truly have a country that works for everyone'.
