There is no definitive answer to this question since the census data for the race is not always accurate, and there is no official government count of black people in the UK. However, according to The Guardian, the 2011 census estimated that 1.1 million black people were living in England and Wales –approximately based on self-identified ethnic group. This number is underestimated because many people of African and Caribbean descent identify as black British rather than black or African. Additionally, the Guardian reports that the 2002 British Social Attitudes Survey found that 4% of respondents identified as black (before the inclusion of a separate category for mixed race).
