Non-Hispanic White

Definition: This indicator provides the poverty rate 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 the population is in poverty."

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