The Race Disparity Audit is an ongoing and permanent programme of work.

The data collated by the Audit from Government Departments and published on the Ethnicity Facts and Figures website, is on the basis of ethnicity.

In data currently collected by Government departments the ‘Sikh’ category is listed under the ‘religion’ classification. The Sikh category is not currently classified in the data as an ethnic group.
