The South Gloucestershire Equalities Forum has compiled the information contained in these pages.
This is the main information about the makeup of population of South Gloucestershire comes from the 2011 census. This shows that the population of South Gloucestershire is broadly reflective of the UK population as a whole except with regard to it Black and Minority Ethnic community which at 5% is significantly below the national average of 14%
The census information is summarised here. And please download a pdf presentation about equality communities, which was prepared specially for South Gloucestershire Equalities Forum.
