Change and continuity among minority communities in Britain

By Andreas Georgiadis and Alan Manning


We compare the Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities in Britain with other ethnic minorities to ask the questions 'are Muslims different?' and 'is their behaviour changing over time?'. We look at the gender gap in education, age at marriage, marriage from the source country and female employment. In all these dimensions we find that Muslim communities are different but also that there is a convergence in behaviour. This is because those born in Britain generally differ markedly in behaviours from those born in the country of origin, but also because there is change within both the UK- and foreign-born communities
