Multiple ethnic group households

Multiple ethnic groups classifies households by the diversity in ethnic group of household members in different relationships.

For example, different ethnic groups between generations or within partnerships.

For Northern Ireland only, 'Same ethnic group' means within the same ethnic group as defined by the 12-way ethnic classification (White, Chinese, Irish Traveller, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Other Asian, Black Caribbean, Black African, Black Other, Mixed, Other).

'Different ethnic groups within partnerships' includes all households where there are different ethnic groups within partnerships whether or not there are also different ethnic groups between generations.
