Ethnic Minorities and Vaccination

For ITV’s Peston programme, Number Cruncher conducted a poll of over 2,000 UK adults, looking at attitudes to Covid-19 vaccination, together with voting intention.

The poll finds that while willingness to get vaccinated has increased substantially across ethnic lines since October, there remains significantly more hesitancy among non-white communities, driven by safety concerns.

Crossbreaks, including those for some individual ethnic groups, will have larger margins of error than a full-sized poll. Very small crossbreaks – specifically those with unweighted subsamples smaller than 50 – are included for completeness but are not statistically reliable.

The topline is available here, tables are available here for ethnic minority respondents and here for white respondents.

On behalf of ITV, Number Cruncher Politics interviewed 2,001 adult (18+) UK residents online between 25th January to 1st February 2021. The sample included 1,001 white respondents and 1,000 ethnic minority respondents. White and ethnic minority subsamples were each independently weighted to the profiles of their respective subpopulations, from which nationally representative figures were derived based on the combined sample, weighted to representative proportions.
