The AA. construct and analyse a unique evidence base of the labour-market circumstances at the neighbourhood level. The 2001 Census data (England and Wales) are used to examine the impact of age, sex, birthplace, and educational qualifications on the employment of ethnic minorities nationally. They compute locally expected employment on the basis of these relationships and local characteristics, and compare it with the locally observed employment. National ethnic-group differences account for most of the local job deficit
