Non-Hispanic White

Definition: This indicator provides the unemployment 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 the unemployment rate is 10%."

Notes: Employment status is for civilians age 16+ years old. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
