Cultural diversity and subjective well-being
in England. In England, and in many other countries, local communities are becoming
more diverse in terms of country of birth, ethnicity and religion of residents, with
unclear consequences on the well-being of people living in these communities. The
results suggest that white British people living in diverse areas have on average
lower levels of life satisfaction than those living in areas where diversity is low,
while there is no correlation on average between diversity and life satisfaction for
non-white British people and foreign born.
