Location dynamics, owner occupation and ethnicity in Scotland

Project Information

Using surname grouping to identify ethnic identity this project will model the spatial dynamics of ethnic migartion within and between cities in Scotland. We aim to fill an important gap in evidence for health, housing, education and social service planning by modelling, explaining and predicting inter-Census spatial patterns of ethnicity (currently unknown) of migration flows. The project will combine advanced statistical techniques with nuanced qualitative research to deepen our understanding of how changes within communities are experienced, represented and responded to, and how ethnicity is claimed and ascribed within/across communities.

Lead researchers: Jessie Bakens, Ken Gibb, Chris Leishman, Professor Gwilym Pryce, Andrew Smith, Satnam Virdee, as well as an LDOES Qualitative Researcher (yet to be appointed).

Dates: January 2015 - December 2016
