A legacy of inequality: Muslims and contemporary income inequality in the United Kingdom
by Varju, Melinda Laura, M.A., University of Wyoming, 2013, 46; 1552902
Abstract (Summary)

Muslims are the most disadvantaged minority group in the United Kingdom. One consistent feature of Muslims in the United Kingdom is their dire socioeconomic situation since their initial settlement in the 17th Century. This study examines the economic position of Muslims in the United Kingdom today using the Labor Force Survey. To understand Muslims' economic incorporation, this study examines Muslims' contexts of reception into contemporary UK society. Using data from the Labor Force Survey, the results demonstrate that the economic disadvantage which Muslims experienced a generation ago continues to afflict Muslims in the United Kingdom today.
