Statistics and research
Key statistics about equalities communities
Population profiles by equalities group can be found on the population of Bristol page.
The profiles analyse Census 2021 data to look at the differences between groups in
- health and disability
- economic activity
- occupation, qualifications
- housing and household composition
The profiles also map the distribution of population groups across the city.
You can also find an Equalities Statistics guide which outlines the main sources of equalities statistics for Bristol, including information on:
- ethnic group
- sexual orientation
- gender identity
- legal partnership status
Quality of Life in Bristol
The Quality of Life survey is a yearly survey carried out in Bristol. It gives us information about the quality of life for Bristol's residents. It's broken down by ward, equalities groups and areas of deprivation.
We monitor people by equalities group to identify any inequalities in service delivery and in employment.
This information helps us to:
- take action to reduce differences in the uptake, representation and outcomes experienced by different service users and our employees.
- improve our services for the benefit of Bristol's communities
