The 1991 Census of Population was highly significant, since it was the first to collect information on the ethnic group of individuals. Since this is the only survey which covers the entire population and all parts of the country, this provides the first definitive and comprehensive data on the ethnic composition of Great Britain (ethnic group data was not collected in Northern Ireland).

Minority ethnic populations grew in virtually every local authority area, including those with very few minorities at the start of the decade as well as those where minority ethnic communities were already established. This is consistent with the pattern of dispersal that was evident in the 1980s. This is consistent with a pattern of natural population growth and continuing immigration to join established family members. Increases in minority ethnic populations are probably particularly over-stated, because these groups were particularly likely to have been under-counted in the 1991 Census.
According to the 2011 census, the total population of the United Kingdom was around 63,182,000. It is the 21st-most populated country in the world. Its overall population density is 259 people per square kilometre (671 people per sq mi), with England having a significantly higher population density than Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

By European standards Britain has good data-sources for identifying the current educational profile of the key ethnic minorities, and for tracking them over time. Data-sources include the census, though it was only in 1991 that an explicit ethnic group question was included; the PEP-PSI (Policy Studies Institute) surveys; the Labour Force Surveys (LFS); local education authority data; the Youth Cohort Survey; and national data on university entrants collected by the Universities Central Admissions Survey (UCAS) and the Higher Education Funding Councils.
