Migrants’ Rights Network are taking part in the EVEN Survey and would like to hear from you if you are from a religious or ethnically diverse background and would like to tell us about your experience of Covid.
Reports of the uneven effects of the pandemic on ethnic minorities suggest that certain groups have experienced severe and long-lasting impacts on their health and economic circumstances. These reports have spurred much debate about why such inequalities are emerging; however, one of the problems in advancing these debates – and policy responses – is that there is not enough (of the right kind of) data to thoroughly understand how and why experiences in 2020 diverge for ethnic and religious groups.
The Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity has recently launched the new Evidence for Equality National Survey (EVENS), which aims to address this data gap. Working with a range of partner organisations including Migrants’ Rights Network, The Ubele Initiative, Race Equality Foundation and Operation Black Vote, EVENS will survey more ethnic and religious minorities than any other survey.
The sample of 20,000 will include 17,000 ethnic and religious minorities, and will survey a wider range of ethnic and religious groups than other data, including Roma, Sub-Saharan African and Jewish populations. Finally, the survey will cover topics not included in other data that are of relevance to policy and practice, including experiences of racism, policing, wellbeing, caring, social isolation, identity and belonging, Black Lives Matter, social cohesion and political participation.
The survey is completely anonymous and you will receive a £10 voucher as a thank you for your time. To take the survey click here or on the graphic below:
