Britain Is More Than Full

Map of Britain in PunjabiI got a copy of Issues : Racial Discrimination from the library, this is supposed to be an educational resource series aimed at GCSE/A-lvl students which I thought might be handy to give me a bit of background for the immigration experience section I am studying at the moment.  On only the second page though was this piece of information...

Children Under 16 by Ethnic Group 2001-2

88% white
6%  asian or asian british
3%  black or black british
3%  mixed
1%  other

That's right folks, Britian is at 101% capacity. So if the proofreader let that glaring error slip through, how can I rely on the 'facts' presented in the rest of the series ?
