Demographers at the Greater London Authority

MORE STATISTICS

Just over 50% of London’s population described themselves as white British in the 2001 census. A further 14% are either white Irish or white other [Europeans, Americans, Australians, New Zealanders etc.] There are now more ethnically African residents [8%] in London than black Caribbean. The largest Asian community is Bangladeshis [5%]. The 2001 census provided the first ever figures for mixed-race.

London’s non-white population, 28.8% of the capital’s total, is the largest of any European city. Demographers at the Greater London Authority predict that, due to continuing immigration, this will rise to a third of London’s population within the next ten years.

London is the destination for most of Britain’s 185,000 new immigrants each year. The biggest growth will be in London’s Asian communities, which still have relatively large families, and also black Africans, due mainly to migration. It is also likely that the number of British-born children of Afro-Caribbean and mixed parentage will increase at a significant rate.

This does not conform to the clear high ethnic minority inner city/ low ethnic minority suburban contrast evident in so many other cities in the developed world. Certainly a number of boroughs fit this model, for example the outer suburban arc from Havering in the north east to Richmond upon Thames in the south west. Apart from Croydon, all the boroughs in this arc have non-white ethnic group population below 20%. Also strongly following expectations are Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and Hackney - a group of inner city boroughs that are all above 30% on the same measure.

However, on the other side of the coin the two boroughs with the highest % population non-white [Newham and Brent] are classed as outer London boroughs.

For example in Tower Hamlets, the Bangladeshi population ranges from 58.1% in the ward of Spitalfields and Banglatown to 10% in the Bow East ward.

Ethnic villages to a greater or lesser extent show clear evidence of the groups residing within their areas in terms of shops, places of worship, schools, cinemas, newspapers, social facilities, advertising and of course street presence. For example, the German school in Richmond and the nearby German bakery, the only one in London, have become key reference points for the capital’s German community. The French Lycee [a school] in Kensington assumes a similar role. The UK is home to the second largest expatriate French population after the USA, with a very significant proportion of this group living in London.
