This chapter discusses ethnic and racial classification systems in U.K., focusing on England and Wales census classification of “mixed” people. The 2001 Census enumerated a total of 661,034 “Mixed” persons resident in England and Wales, representing approximately 1.3 percent of the total population. The largest mixed group was “White and Black Caribbean” (35.9 percent), followed by “White and Asian” (28.6 percent), and “Other Mixed” (23.6 percent), with a smaller “White and Black African” (11.9 percent) group. This mixed group is now one of the fastest growing segments of the British population as revealed by the findings of the 2011 England and Wales Census.
