Ethnic minorities to make up 20% of UK population by 2051 13th July 2010

Ethnic minorities will make up a fifth of Britain’s population by 2051, compared with 8% in 2001, according to new projections published today by the University of Leeds.

In October, the Office for National Statistics predicted the population would exceed 70m by 2029.
