Definition: This indicator provides the unemployment rate for the average neighborhood in which each racial group lives, for households of different income groups. For instance, if the value is 10% for affluent blacks, this statistic is interpreted as "The average affluent black household in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where the unemployment rate is 10%."

Notes: Household income categories are defined as "poor" (income below $30,000 in 1999), "affluent" (income more than $60,000 in 1999), and "middle income" (those falling in between). Income is as of 1999. Employment status is for civilians age 16+ years old. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
