The question about bullying does not take account of changes during a person's lifetime.

fornorm wrote:The whole question of ethnicity is fraught with difficulty. Two reasons particularly give cause for concern:
1) The ancestors of most people could include many races if you look back a few generations and not all families have access to complete records, so a glib one or two-word answer is meaningless and could be misleading, depending on why the question was asked.
2) In the U.K. it is illegal to discriminate on grounds of race or ethnicity; by answering a question like that, I could be assisting in an illegal act of discrimination. If there is no intention to use the results to discriminate between races, then there is no need for the question at all.
