    Fertility and Family

    Overview

    Recent research reports a growing share of immigrant-native unions in the UK, possibly suggesting increased integration and social cohesion in British society. However, less is known about the fate of mixed-ethnic unions. Building on previous CPC research, this project investigates the stability of ethnically mixed unions. We will analyse the risk of separation for non-marital and marital unions that formed (and dissolved) between 2009 and 2016 using data from UKHLS. The research will distinguish between unions of white British with South Asians, Caribbeans and (continental) Europeans, investigating differences by gender. The study will significantly improve our understanding of the factors shaping the stability of mixed ethnic unions and their role in immigrant and minority integration.
