wikipedia lol, although I believe its from the 2011 census.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_groups_in_the_United_Kingdom

British indian: 1.45 million

British Pakistani: 1.17 million

interestingly, other asian (dont know what this means) is numbered at: 860,000 ???

It makes good sense to me. Paks are more homogenous and would live together, whilst 'Indians' aren't as likely to clump together. You have Hindu areas and Sikh areas, and mixed areas and wherever Sikhs are there are damn sure to be some Paks.

 

From what I understand the concentration of Sikhs are in Gravesend, Southall, Wolves. Maybe some areas of B'ham but not sure. Goodmayes has a reasonable Sikh community but I'm sure there are as many Gujus and Paks there too?

Statistically Sikhs are just as likely to clump together as Pakistanis are http://www.ethnicity.ac.uk/medialibrary/briefingsupdated/more-segregation-or-more-mixing.pdf

There's always been more Indians than Pakistanis in the UK. You probably assume that all Asian Muslims in the UK are Pakistani, when lots are in fact Bengali or Guji Muslim

What about those Arabs and since England unlike America wasn't very smart about the refugee crisis that skewed their results as well on the Muslims there?

I'd take those stats with a big pinch of salt myself. I skimmed through that, hard to find any solid facts.

Measurement of residential clustering is difficult. Though a growing number of an ethnic group in one place is a bigger ‘cluster’, it does not mean any greater separation from others. For example, in the UK the Bangladeshi population has grown in size, leading to larger clusters of Bangladeshis across the country. At the same time there has been spreading out from the biggest Bangladeshi concentration in Tower Hamlets. The same is true of the Indian, Caribbean, Pakistani, and African groups, and of Muslims, Sikhs Buddhists, Christians and Hindus. So, there are bigger clusters and more mixing at the same time.
