A common claim is that Britain's minorities live isolated "parallel lives" in inner cities that have become ethnic ghettos. Does the evidence confirm such dangerous lack of integration? Ludi Simpson and Nissa Finney find a basic misunderstanding about population change - a misunderstanding that makes changing the ethnic mix of neighbourhoods an unrealistic policy goal.
