In a study published in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers at the University of Exeter and the University College London (UCL) found that the United Kingdom’s population is the most like that of Britain.
The researchers compared the UK census figures for people born in 1949 with those born in 2017 to create a composite of British and British-derived countries.
They found that a majority of British people have an ethnic or national background similar to that of British-born Britons, but that there is no overlap between the populations of those born overseas and those born here.
They also found that British-origin Britons are less likely to have British-sounding names.
The study, led by Professor David Latham, a UCL research fellow, and Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, of the University’s Department of Political Science and Political Science, also found the UK to be one of the most racially diverse countries in the world.
The authors also compared the population of the UK with those of the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
The report, entitled The UK’s Ethnicity and Multiculturalism, is published in PLOS One.
They say the study “shows how much variation exists between countries in terms of race and ethnic background, as well as how the patterns of immigration and settlement are linked to the different levels of immigration.”
In a news release, the researchers said they found that “there is a marked difference in the ways in which ethnic groups within the UK are classified, with ethnic minority people classified more similarly to the British national population”.
They added: “It is important to note that these findings do not show an equivalence between ethnic groups in the UK and in other countries.
There is a substantial variation between ethnic and non-ethnic groups in terms the level of immigration, and there is a large difference in language and cultural backgrounds.”
The results suggest that in the case of ethnic and racial differences between the UK’s populations, there is significant and persistent ethnic or cultural heterogeneity across the United Kingdoms.
