Introduction

This report presents community cohesion statistics from the 2011 Census and
Quality of Life survey 2007–2012 for the Bristol Local Authority area.

Community change since 2001

Since 2001 there has been a large increase in the total number of people living in
Bristol which has resulted in a changing population profile. In Bristol, there are now at
least 45 religions and at least 50 countries of birth represented and at least 91 main
languages spoken by people living in Bristol.
Bristol has experienced similar trends to England and Wales as whole in terms of
changes to the population. The total population is estimated to have grown by 38,100
(9.7%) between 2001 and 2011, from 390,000 in 2001 to 428,100 in 2011.
The proportion of the population who are not ‘White British’ has increased from 12%
to 22% of the total population. The largest growth has been in the White Other, Black
African and Black Other groups – this includes growth particularly in the Polish and
Somali populations. Overall the Black and Minority Ethnic group (BME 1) population
has increased from 8.2% in 2001 to 16% in 2011.
The proportion of people living in Bristol who were not born in the UK has increased
from 8% of all people in 2001 to 15% of all people in 2011. Of all the people not born

The BME population includes people of all ethnic groups other than White British, White Irish, White Other and White Gypsy or
Irish Traveller

2

in the UK, 61% of them have arrived in the UK in the last decade (ie between 2001
and 2011).
The proportion of people who are Christian has decreased from 62% to 47%, whilst
the proportion of people stating that they have no religion has increased from 25% to
37%. The Muslim population living in Bristol has increased from 2% of all people to
5% of all people.
Although all parts of the city have experienced changes in the people living in their
area since 2001, in terms of changes which may have the greatest effect on
community cohesion, changes have been concentrated in the inner city and inner
east areas of the city, in particular in the wards of Lawrence Hill, Ashley, Easton and
Eastville. Cabot has also experienced a large growth in population but this is mainly
attributable to a large increase in the number of students since 2001, in particular
international students. Statistics summarising change by ward between 2001 and
2011 can be found in the appendix.

Population

As outlined above, there has been a substantial increase in the number of people
usually resident in Bristol over the past decade (2001 to 2011). The total population
is estimated to have grown by 9.7%, from 390,000 in 2001 to 428,100 in 2011, a
higher rate of growth than the England and Wales average of 7.3%. The growth
includes an additional 10,100 students living in Bristol during term time.
The estimated components of population change in Bristol are shown in Figure 2.
This shows that population growth in Bristol has been generated by international inmigration, increasing numbers of births and decreasing numbers of deaths. There
has been a notable spike in international in-migration between 2004 and 2005,
thought to result from the accession countries joining the European Union in 2004.

Whilst there have been significant estimated increases in population across many
wards in Bristol between 2001 and 2011, there has been exceptional increases in
Cabot of 6,100 (62.2%) people and Lawrence Hill of 5,700 (43.2%) people. Other
wards which have experienced large increases in the population since 2001 are
Ashley 2,800 (20.9%), Southville 2,200 (21.5%), Bedminster 1,700 (15.7%),
Bishopston 1,700 (13.8%) and Cotham 1,600 (15.1%). At the same time there has
also been decreasing populations in Henleaze, Stockwood, Whitchurch Park, Stoke
Bishop and Kingsweston wards. Figure 3 illustrates the distribution of population
change across Bristol between 2001 and 2011.

Ethnic group

The Black or Minority Ethnic group (BME) population (all groups with the exception of
all the White groups) make up 16% of the total population in Bristol. This is an
increase from 8.2% of all people in 2001.
The non-‘White British’ population (all groups with the exception of White British)
make up 22% of the total population in Bristol. This is an increase from 12% of all
people in 2001.
The largest increases since 2001 have been in Other White, Black African, Black
Other and Multiple/mixed ethnic groups. These changes reflect the large growth in
the Somali and the Polish populations in Bristol.
The BME population varies significantly across the city (see Figure 6) - in Lawrence
Hill ward 55% of all people belong to a BME group compared to 4% in Whitchurch
Park. This difference is emphasised even more when looking at areas smaller than
wards – in ‘St Pauls Grosvenor Road’ 80% of all people belong to a BME group
whilst just 1.4% are BME in ‘The Coots’ in Stockwood.

Since 2001, the distribution of the BME population of Bristol has changed
considerably - figure 6 maps the percentage of people who belong to a BME group
by ward both in 2001 and in 2011. Whilst in 2001 the BME population largely lived in
the inner city wards of Ashley, Easton, Lawrence Hill and Eastville, with all other
wards having a BME population of below 14%, in 2011 the distribution of the BME
6

population had extended out to the north east of the city. Now wards with a BME
population of above 14% include Lawrence Hill, Easton, Ashley, Eastville, Lockleaze,
Cabot, Hillfields, St George West, Frome Vale, Horfield and Southmead.

Somali population estimate
The Somali population are not identified as a separate ethnic group in the 2011
Census but are included in both the Black African and Black Other groups, depending
on which tick box people chose on the Census questionnaire.
The best estimate we can make of the number of Somalis living in Bristol is to take the
number of Black Africans and Black Others who identified themselves as Muslims and
to then subtract those Muslims born in parts of Africa outside Eastern Africa. This gives
us a Somali population estimate of 8,100.
Local knowledge suggests that it is likely that some Somalis, in particular men living in
informal accommodation, may have been under estimated by the 2011 Census. Taking
this into consideration, our local estimate of the number of Somalis living in Bristol in
2001 is around 10,000.

Religion

There are at least 45 religions represented in Bristol (see Figure 8). The largest
religion is Christian (47%), although following national trends the proportion of people
stating that they are Christian has fallen from 62% of all people living in Bristol in
2001.
Bristol is ranked 7th in England and Wales for the proportion of people stating that
they have no religion - 37% of the population state they have no religion, up from
25% in 2001.
Since 2001 the religion to increase the most in Bristol has been the Muslim religion
which increased from 2% of all people in Bristol in 2001 to 5% of all people in 2011
(see Figure 9).

Country of Birth

There are at least 50 countries represented in Bristol (see Figure 12). 15% of the
people living in Bristol were born outside the UK, this is an increase since 2001 when
the proportion of people born outside the UK was 8%.
Lawrence Hill ward has the highest proportion of people not born in the UK at 37% of
the total population.
Figure 11 lists the most popular countries of birth (not including the UK). Poland is
the most popular country of birth in Bristol followed by Somalia, India and Jamaica

Migrants

For the first time in 2011, the census asked a series of questions about migration,
including a question about when people migrated to the UK. Of the people living in
Bristol not born in the UK, the majority (60%) have been resident in the UK for less
than 10 years. Of the people not born in the UK, 69% arrived in the UK when they
were of working age and 30% arrived as children.

Language

For the first time in 2011, the census asked a question about main language spoken
and proficiency in English. This found that there are at least 91 main languages
spoken in Bristol (see Figure 19).
English is the main language spoken followed by Polish and then Somali – this is
illustrated by Figures 17 and 18 whereby the size of the text represents the number
of people who speak that language as their main language. Overall 9% of people do
not speak English as their main language.

Proficiency in English is categorised into people who can speak English very well,
those who can speak English well, those who cannot speak English well and those
who cannot speak English. Overall in Bristol 1.5% of people cannot speak English or
cannot speak English very well. Figure 20 shows the distribution across Bristol.
Interestingly, although there is a high proportion of people whose main language is
not English living in Cabot ward (19.3%), there is a very low proportion of those who
do not speak English or do not speak it well (1.5%). This reflects the high proportion
of foreign students living in the ward.

Quality of Life – community cohesion indicators

The following five indicators have been measured in the Quality of Life annual
residents’ satisfaction survey for the past eight years. Each indicator also includes a
graphical interpretation with a map, graphs and figures for wards and equalities
groups.
% respondents who feel they belong to their neighbourhood



This indicator fell for the first time in seven years from 64% in 2011 to 60% in 2012,
but is still a significant improvement from the figure in 2006 when it measured 57%.
The ward pattern across the city has been similar each year, with the highest sense
of belonging in the west/northwest (particularly Stoke Bishop, Westbury-on-Trym,
Henleaze, Bishopston, Redland, Clifton and Southville) plus Ashley in the Inner City
(all 67% or above in 2012). Hillfields (43% in 2012), Lawrence Hill (49% in 2012) and
Henbury (51% in 2012) have tended to be the wards with the lowest percentages of
respondents 'who feel they belong to their neighbourhood'. The indicator was also
significantly lower in deprived areas of the city (52%).
Equalities analysis indicated significantly more of the older people (67%) had a
higher sense of belonging. Fewer people who said they had ‘no faith’ felt they
belonged to their neighbourhood (56%). This pattern was the same as in 2011.
Further analysis (not shown) suggests that significant predictors for having a sense
of belonging to the neighbourhood are age, having a Black or minority ethnicity, living
in a deprived area and housing tenure. Attachment to the local area increases with
age, from 43% of people in their twenties to 77% of those aged seventy or over.
Black and minority ethnic groups are more likely to say they 'feel they belong to their
neighbourhood' (66%). Living in a rented accommodation appears to lessen the
feeling of investment in the neighbourhood (53% of people living in social housing;
48% of people privately renting). There is some weaker evidence that people with
lower educational qualifications and men are less likely to feel that they belong to
their local area.
% respondents who agree people from different backgrounds get on well



together
This indicator improved from 53% in 2005 to 59% in 2008 and remained at this level,
measuring 60% in 2012.
The ward pattern has been similar in recent years. Ashley, Bishopston, Henleaze and
Redland usually have some of the highest values of the indicator (at least 74% in
2012), and deprived areas record the lowest (52%). In Hillfields the proportion of
residents who agree that 'people from different backgrounds get on well together'
rose from 35% in 2011 to 55% in 2012.
Further analysis (not shown) suggests that more Black and minority ethnic residents
(67%), people aged seventy and over (66%) and respondents with higher
educational qualifications thought people in their neighbourhood got on well together.

% respondents who agree people treat other people with respect in their

neighbourhood
This indicator steadily increased from 57% in 2006 until 2010, when it measured
67%. This proportion remained unchanged in 2011 and 2012.
The indicator pattern is similar each year with a good deal of variation across the city,
from 46% Filwood to 93% in Henleaze. Over the past seven years, the indicator has
shown a significant improvement in Avonmouth, Brislington West, Lawrence Hill,
Lockleaze and St George East. This improvement has narrowed the gap between
deprived areas and the rest of the city. Still significantly fewer people (51%) in
deprived areas agreed people treat each other with respect and consideration.
Further analysis (not shown) suggests that people of Muslim faith (75%), people
aged seventy and over (80%) and people with higher qualifications agreed people
are treated with respect. People who live in social housing and carers (62%) are less
likely to agree that people are treated with respect.

% respondents who feel they can influence decisions in their local

neighbourhood
Only one in four (24%) of residents feel influential, which is not significantly different
from the situation in 2005 , when 22% of respondents felt influential.
There is little variation across the city for this indicator. St George East and St
George West neighbourhood partnership, at 15%, has the smallest proportion of
residents feeling influential whilst Windmill Hill has the biggest, at 32%. The position
has worsened in Ashley where the indicator has decreased from 35% in 2008 to 21%
in 2012.
Further analysis (not shown) suggests predictors for feeling influential are having
higher educational qualifications and being older. There is evidence for people of
Muslim faith and people living in social housing feeling more influential.

% respondents satisfied with their local neighbourhood (or area) as a place to
live

Supplementary indicator: % respondents who feel their neighbourhood has got
better/worse/not changed in the last 2 years

In 2012, 83% of residents said they were satisfied with their neighbourhood, a steady
and significant improvement since 2005, when 77% of residents said the same.
Bristol also compares well with similar cities: Manchester 77%, Newcastle 77%,
Nottingham 84% and Sheffield 81%.
Satisfaction was significantly lower in deprived areas of the city (70%) but the gap
between the deprived areas and the rest of the city has narrowed since 2005.
Satisfaction was also lower for disabled people (78%), people in their twenties (78%)
and carers (not shown), but was highest for people aged 70 years and over (88%)
and people with higher qualifications (not shown). Most satisfied residents lived in
Westbury-on-Trym, at 99% and the least in Lawrence Hill at 65%.
Questions were also asked about neighbourhood change in the last 2 years (graph
below). The Greater Fishponds area (Hillfields, Eastville and Frome Vale) had a
higher proportion of residents who said their neighbourhood had got worse (36%).
