The article discusses a study which assessed the methods and impact of the use of ethnicity recording in primary care. The study compared the age-banded practice population estimates for white, African American and South Asian groups with those from the Greater London Authority (GLA) in order to investigate the agreement between estimated and direct measurement of ethnicity. Data also showed the ethnicity recording in East London, England from 2005-2010.
