This chapter compares a relatively wide range of outcomes for the main ethnic minorities in the UK with the outcomes for white natives. The chapter also compares the outcomes for the foreign and UK born. The indicators we look at are fertility, marriage, and divorce rates, interethnic marriage, spousal age gaps, the gender gap in education, employment rates, national identity, religiosity, and language use. The chapter finds substantial heterogeneity across ethnic minority communities but also evidence that in almost all dimensions and for all groups, the UK-born minorities are closer to white natives than the foreign born.

Keywords: immigration; integration; ethnic minorities; fertility rates; marriage rates; divorce rates; inter-ethnic marriage; gender gap; UK
