This Equalities report provides data on residents in selected population groups in Oxfordshire including “protected characteristics” as defined under the Equality Act of 2010.
There is also information for practitioners on carrying out an equity audit.
In some cases, local data is unavailable, so figures for Oxfordshire have been estimated from national surveys and local population data.
Note on COVID-19:
• This report includes the most recent datasets accessed in January 2021.
• Most data is as of mid-2019 or from the Census 2011 survey or up to March 2020.
