White children are set to become a minority group in Birmingham, England

A study by the University of Manchester has predicted that more than half of children in Birmingham will be from black and South and East Asian backgrounds when the census is carried out at the end of March 2011. In 2006, 53% of children under 16 were from white families and this figure is expected to drop substantially to 47% when the census is carried out in a couple of months. Researchers from the university previously calculated that the proportion of children aged under 16 who are from black and other non-white ethnic minorities will rise to about 64% by 2026. A major reason for this is the continued immigration of people from Pakistan, Africa and China.
