6.24 Poverty:  Poverty by Race

In the effort to understand the dynamics a community, its needs and how best to design and carry-out prevention programs to meet those needs, it is helpful to analyze data by many different variables.  Poverty is an example of how this principle applies.  Rates of poverty differ not only between age groups but also in conjunction with other variables, such as race/ethnicity and marital and parenting status.   PREV-STAT™ can help the prevention professional look at such combinations of variables to identify an area of need or to better understand a target audience.  First we report on poverty and race, secondly on marital status, parent status and poverty (single parents in poverty).
