Population identifying as gypsy or irish travellers 2011

The latest ONS analysis uses 2011 Census data to look at characteristics of the Gypsy or Irish Traveller community for the first time. As an ethnic group, they are recognised under the Equality Act 2010 and are widely considered by government and charities to be a vulnerable marginalised group who suffer from poor outcomes. The 2011 Census allowed respondents to identify as this ethnic group for the first time, and 58,000 people selected this option (this does not include people who identify as Roma). This made it the smallest ethnic group (with a tick box) in 2011, accounting for 0.1% of the population of England and Wales. http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/census/2011-census-analysis/what-does-the-2011-census-tell-us-about-the-characteristics-of-gypsy-or-irish-travellers-in-england-and-wales-/info-gypsy-or-irish-travellers.html
