Definition: This indicator provides the share households headed by female-headed (non-married couple) families with children for the average neighborhood in which each racial group lives. For instance, if the value is 10% for blacks, this statistic is interpreted as "The average black person in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of households are headed by female-headed families with children."

Notes: Children are defined as never married "own children" under age 18 living at home. "Own children" are biological children, step children, or adopted children of the household head. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
