highly multi-cultural neighbourhoods in Brent, whether they were first, second or third generation migrants. Age The population of Brent seems to be clustered between the ages 25 and 39; not dissimilar to the literature findings (Rabinowitz and Fennig, 2002). There are almost the same numbers of males (134.8) and females (135.2), with the highest concentration of both males and females whose ages are between 25 and 29. Ethnicity In terms of ethnicity, the division of the population is 29.2% White British, followed by 27.7% who are Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and other Indian origins, with 19.9% who are either Caribbean and African or other Black. 7% of the remaining population is Irish, 3.8% are mixed and 3.4% are Chinese (Brent Council, 2006). If we compare these figures to the ethnic population in the Brent area as shown in the Brent Annual Report (2008), we can see that Black populations (Caribbean, African, other Black) more or less make up 25 % of the population, while white British, Irish and other white categories represent almost 45 %.
