Ethnic Divide

A typical Bangladeshi household earns £8,900 less than that of a white British household, 
A Pakistani household earns £8,700 less, according to the Resolution Foundation.
A typical black African family also earned £5,600 less than that of a white household.
The large gap in living standards between white households and those of ethnic groups in Britain was partly down to differences in female employment within the families.
In white households 72% of women were employed, but in Pakistani and Bangladeshi households the rate was almost half this at 37% and 35% respectively.
Resolution Foundation senior economic analyst Adam Corlett said the gap in living standards between ethnic groups and white British households remained "significant and persistent. Differences in living standards between ethnicities in Britain too often go ignored,"
