For instance, if the value is 10% for Hispanic renters, this statistic is interpreted as "The average Hispanic renter household in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where the poverty rate is 10%."

Notes: Poverty rates defined as of 1999. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
