Is Britain Fairer? The State of Equality and Human Rights 2015

Source: Equality and Human Rights Commission (UK)

From Executive Summary:

The Equality Act 2006 gave the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) the duty to report regularly on the extent to which equality and human rights are improving in Britain. We published How fair is Britain? (a review of equality) in 2010, followed by the Human Rights Review in 2012.

This, in 2015, is our first report on progress....

We have gathered data and evidence based around 10 domains: education; standard of living; productive and valued activities; health; life; physical security; legal security; individual, family and social life; identity, expression and self-respect; and participation, influence and voice. Within each of these domains, there is a set of indicators and measures that we have used in order to evaluate progress. Produced in parallel with this report are 10 detailed evidence papers (one for each domain), available on our website.
