Definition: This indicator provides the share of housing built before 1940 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 the housing stock was built before 1940."

Notes: Children defined as under 18. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 child population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
