Some of the data suggests that black people in Britain are the group most likely to feel the effects of isolation and disharmony because of their ethnicity. One statistic in the Culture and Community section of the website revealed that 77% of black people "feel people from different backgrounds get on together in their local area by ethnicity" as compared with other ethnicities, 80-85% of whom answered 'yes' to the same question.

'Other/mixed' respondents and those who identify as black seem to be the most digitally-savvy in the country - 95% and 92% respectively use the Internet compared with 88% of white people.

These two groups also offered similar views on whether or not they had trust in their "local police" - 72% of mixed respondents had trust in their neighbourhood force in 2016 along with 73% of black people surveyed. These trust levels are the lowest in the country - 79% of white people and 81% of 'other' respondents trust their local police service.

The website also revealed that 87% of white people who had committed crimes were convicted, compared with 82% of black people in 2016.
