Ethnicity & Road Safety

Typical research into road safety trends and patterns tends to focus on road environments or the actions of those involved in a collision, with infrequent reference to the profiles of those injured. Analysis is usually limited to age and gender, which only provides a rudimentary review of demographics. Agilysis has significant experience of analysing data in much more detail, linking to other datasets, and providing detailed personas for typical casualty types.
Our research and analytics teams were posed a question about whether people from different ethnic backgrounds were more or less likely to be injured on the roads of Great Britain.
The broad analysis of pedestrian casualties identified increased casualty representations from ethnic minority (excluding White minority) groups, especially those living in deprived neighbourhoods. The analysis revealed that deprived ethnic minority pedestrians are over three times more likely to be a casualty on Britain’s roads than white non-deprived pedestrians.
The findings show that deprivation plays a significant role in the likelihood of a pedestrian being injured in a collision, and that being from an ethnic minority plays an additional part.
You can read the full version of the report here. Ethnicity in Road Safety will also be one of the topics in our latest webinar series running throughout June.
