How fair is Britain? Research reports

Research reports

In preparing for this triennial review we commissioned seven research institutions to conduct gap-filling research and analysis. These institutions focused on secondary analysis of existing data, identifying small-scale and qualitative research projects, and gauging the performance of the protected equality groups against the indicators in the Equality Measurement Framework (EMF)

The key areas that these research projects focused on are life and health, access to housing and standard of living, financial exclusion, civic life, employment, education and learning, legal and criminal justice, wellbeing. Some of the reports from this research are already available to download below and others will follow as they become finalised.
