Camden’s diversity is a huge asset. But in a diverse community, problems affect different groups very differently. In creating the state of the borough report, we learned a lot about this kind of inequality across gender, age and ethnic groups.
It’s also important to highlight that we’ve uncovered big gaps in our knowledge in this area. If we are to achieve our ambitions for all of Camden’s residents, we need data that addresses these inequalities. Currently, such data is only available for 2011 housing tenure, education outcomes, and free school meals.
- The wage gap between men and women is over £5000 annually
- Home ownership is highest among 65+ year olds
- Overcrowding is almost 5 times more likely for Black and Asian households compared with white
- People who identify as Black or of mixed ethnicity are 3 times more likely than White people to experience food insecurity, meaning not having access to enough food or food of good enough quality
