Abstract: We investigated family caregiving, using established questions from national surveys, for 1206 adults aged 40+ for six minority communities in England and Wales. We included in our analysis factors that predisposed caregiving (age, sex, marital status and household composition) and enabled caregiving (health, material resources, education, employment and cultural values). 15% of adults in the general population are family caregivers: three groups reported lower levels of caring (12%-Black African; 11% -Chinese; 9% Black Caribbean) and three higher (23% Indian, 17% Pakistani and 18% Bangladeshi). Ethnicity predicted caregiving independent of other factors only for the Indian group.
