Ethnic minority business data in the UK

Project overview

EMBD-UK is an interdisciplinary project aimed at developing a visualization map of ethnic minority businesses in the UK. The main goal of this project is to create a data-based dashboard to visualise ethnic minority businesses in the UK over time. This project has found a novel and interdisciplinary approach to answering questions about EMBs at the granular level (e.g. geographical regions, sectors) and over time. By bringing together techniques from data science to answer business-related research questions, this project aims to make a unique contribution to academic knowledge and achieve wider societal impact.
