|This report, the first in a series looking at Census 2001 data, provides the first detailed analysis of statistics in relation to Muslim housing. In summary, the research suggests that ethnic minorities generally have poorer housing conditions and live in worse areas than households from the White majority population.
There are however important differences between different ethnic groups. Indians, for example, fare better in the type of housing and also in the type of location they reside in then many other minority ethnic groups. Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslims are in contrast more likely than other minority ethnic communities to live in overcrowded households (four times the national figure) lacking basic amenities. Furthermore, the percentage of Muslims in shared dwellings is over three times that for all households nationally.
