Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated a disproportionate impact in terms of deaths and infection on Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, there have been problems identified with the accuracy or completeness of the recording of ethnicity. Alongside this, there are wider public debates on the collective terms used to describe communities who experience racism. The Race Equality Foundation has undertaken a recording of ethnicity project to engage with Black, Asian and minority ethnic people, as well as healthcare professionals, in order to gain a better insight into the collection of data on ethnicity.
