Explaining ethnic unemployment and activity rates: evidence from the QLFS in the 1990s and 2000s
AbstractThis article uses data from the Quarterly Labour Force Survey for 1992-95 and 2000-03 to examine changes in ethnic unemployment and economic activity. The intention was to compare the relatively high unemployment era of the 1990s with the lower unemployment era of the 2000s. Although the ethnic minority unemployment situation has improved, only half of the difference between white and non-white unemployment can be attributed to differences in observed characteristics. This suggests that a large unexplained discriminatory element still exists for most ethnic minorities. This has become larger for Pakistani/Bangladeshi men, implying a widening of the unexplained ethnic differential.
