Abstract
This paper draws on a research study carried out for Glasgow District Council and updates previous work in the city. It shows a rise in ethnic-minority population to over 19,000, still concentrated in the inner city but with increasing desegregation into council housing and new private estates. Attitudes to council housing are changing and tenure aspirations are increasingly similar to those of whites. The majority of the minority population is Pakistani in origin and families are quite large. The majority of those in employment are self-employed.
