See also revised ethnicity variable ETHCEN15, which is a detailed ethnic classificatory variable based on answers contained at the questions covered by ETH01, ETHWH, ETHMX, ETHAS AND ETHBL. Data in ETHCEN15 has had 'other' type verbatim responses coded and re-allocated to the appropriate category. Please note that respondents in Northern Ireland who state that their ethnicity is white are not asked the detailed level question EthWh. They are therefore listed as missing, 'not applicable - white Northern Irish' in ETHCEN15. See also variable ETHCEN6 for further ethnicity revisions.
