Using data from the 2011 Census this bulletin explores the relationship between highest qualification and socio-economic class, and economic activity and qualifications. We consider differences between ethnic groups and highest qualification, and the relationship between socio- economic class and economic activity for residents in the most deprived areas of Bradford.
- Higher qualifications are often associated with increased socio-economic classification, with an implied comparative higher income.
- The more qualified you are the more likely are you to be active as an employee, and less likely to be inactive or unemployed.
- In the most deprived neighbourhoods the White English and White Irish groups are most likely to have no qualifications.
- British Black in areas most deprived are the least likely to hold no qualifications and most likely to hold a degree level qualification.
- For areas most deprived economic activity is more prevalent in the semi and routine occupations, but also for lower managerial and intermediate occupations.
- The trend for areas most deprived is economic inactivity for the long-term unemployed, with a rate more than double that of areas not deprived.
