In a study recently conducted by the academicians of the University of Leeds, it was found that the Indian population in Britain may double from its current number by 2051.
Britain's current population of 61,398,000 is estimated to rise to 78 million by 2051, where the current Indian population of 1.4 million is estimated to almost double up to 2.67 million. This will approximately constitute one-fifth of the country's entire population.
In terms of percentage, the share of the population of the ethnic minorities, other than the original British, will increase from its 8 per cent in 2001 to around 20 per cent in 2051.
Also, these ethnic minorities are expected to move from their comparatively deprived regions to more sophisticated and affluent areas of the country. This shift will make them significantly less differentiated from the remaining majority of the population.
While these ethnic groups, comprising chiefly of the black and Asian populations, increase in size and share in not only initial areas of migration, but throughout the country as well, their increase and shift reflects the way in which the original white groups had originally migrated in the past.
