Here are some results based on the England and Wales tables of Ethnic group by sex by age (DC2010EW) which were published last year.  When the Scottish data are published, results for Scotland will be published alongside these.

The different population groups exhibit very different age/sex patterns.
  • The White:Irish population is predominantly older people.  
  • The mixed ethnicity population are predominantly younger, presumably children of parents of different ethnic groups

The Economic and Social Research Council's Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) has prepared briefing documents on the 'Dynamics of diversity: evidence from the 2011 Census' based on the data from England and Wales.  This explores the different characteristics of ethnic populations and also explore the drivers of changes.
