GENERAL INFORMATION


 

Identifying People by their

Ethnic Origin

 

Classifying people according to their ethnic origin is information that is required by many organisations (including Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service) for various monitoring roles. If you are asked to provide such information and are unsure how an individual or group may wish to be identified, then ask them if possible.



 

The terms mentioned below can only be regarded as general guidelines, and are always subject to an individual’s own preferences.

 

African

This is used to describe black people from Africa, but again, individuals often prefer to identify with their country of origin and will use Nigerian, Somali, etc.
