White people are less likely to feel they can influence decisions on running Britain than other ethnic groups, a government survey suggests.
The survey suggests wide differences between ethnic groups
Some 19% of white people agreed they had a say, compared with 33% of other groups, the Department for Communities and Local Government found.
Black African people were most likely to think they could have an influence - 38% said they could.
The DCLG surveyed 3,905 people between April and August last year.
The second most confident group, in terms of its ability to influence the country, was Bangladeshis, on 36%.
Next on 35% were Indians, followed by 34% of Pakistanis and 33% of black Caribbean people.
White people were also the least likely to feel they could influence their local area - 37% of those surveyed agreed they could, compared with a national average of 47%.
The groups most confident in their ability to shape local affairs were black Caribbean and black African people on 51%.
The figures refer to respondents who replied they "definitely agree" or "tend to agree" they could influence decisions.
