Ethnic Disproportionality Tool

The Ethnic Disproportionality Tool is an Excel spreadsheet that provides information about how members of all ethnic groups, including those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups, were represented in the Youth Justice System in England and Wales in the years ending March 2012 to March 2016. The aim of the tool is to support YOTs in addressing any issues of over-representation of particular ethnic groups in their local youth justice systems.

 

The Tool has four sections; including

  1. Table showing the number and proportion of young people who received a youth caution or court conviction broken down by ethnicity for the period year ending March 2012 to year ending March 2016
  2. Chart showing the proportion of young people who received a youth caution or court conviction broken down by ethnicity for the period year ending March 2016 compared with the ethnic breakdown of the local 10-17 population
  3. Statistical tool which identifies whether a particular ethnic group is over-represented in the youth offending cohort and if the level of over-representation is statistically significant according the significance level defined
  4. Charting showing trends in percentage point difference between the proportions of representation of each ethnic group in the offending population with the proportion of representation in the 10-17 population

Please note that only staff that work in a YOT are able to access the toolkit. This can be done from the Document Library on the Youth Justice Application Framework (YJAF). If you have any problems accessing the toolkit on YJAF please contact the YJB Information and Data Team:  informationandanalysis@yjb.gsi.gov.uk


The data is drawn from the Youth Justice Application Framework (YJAF) data based on YOT quarterly returns to the YJB, and from 2011 census.
