Evidence for Equality National Survey (EVENS)

Race Equality Foundation are working in partnership with Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) to document the impact of the pandemic on minority ethnic people in the UK.

Unique new survey of the experiences of ethnic and religious minorities in a time of crisis.

The UK’s first and largest survey of its kind to document the impact of Covid-19, and the lockdowns, on the lives of 17,000 ethnic and religious minority people. The Evidence for Equality National Survey (EVENS) aims to transform the policy landscape, inform work and campaigns for racial justice, and create a data legacy by providing robust evidence on a comprehensive range of issues facing ethnic and religious minority people during the pandemic. Among the topics to be surveyed are employment, finance, education, economic wellbeing, health, housing, policing, identity and experiences of discrimination and racism.

Led by the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) in partnership with the University of Manchester, the University of St Andrews and the University of Sussex, EVENS is being conducted by Ipsos MORI and has been translated into 13 languages. The 30-minute survey will target the full range of ethnic and religious minority groups, across England, Scotland and Wales, and will run for three months until May 2021.
