Non-Hispanic White

Definition: This indicator provides the share of households that contain families with own children in the neighborhood where the average poor child of different racial/ethnic groups lives. For instance, if the value is 10% for poor Hispanic children, this statistic is interpreted as "The average poor Hispanic child in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of households contain families with own children."

Notes: "Own children" defined as never-married children under 18 years who are sons or daughters by birth, stepchildren, or adopted children of the householder. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 children of the specified racial/ethnic group.
