The UK ethnic population on a map

At Joinville, we love data. 🙂 The Guardian's Datablog is one of those places we frequently return to for more and more of it. Here's an interesting post on mapping out the ethnic population in the UK. In the UK, the non-white British population has grown from 6.6m in 2001 to 9.1m in 2009 - or nearly one in six. The figures were published this week in an "experimental" data release from the Office for National Statistics, which also show that there are now a million mixed-race people in the two countries.
