RICH MINORITIES / POOR AREAS

PROVIDENCE, RI - According to a new Brown University study released today, affluent blacks and Hispanics live in neighborhoods that are noticeably poorer than neighborhoods where low-income whites live.

Washington and Atlanta were the only two major metropolitan regions in the country that followed a slightly different pattern. In these two cities, the study found that the situation for high-income blacks and Hispanics was equal, but not worse, than that of low-income whites.

The average black or Hispanic household earning over $75,000 lives in a poorer neighborhood than the average white resident earning under $40,000.

Data show in most metro areas there are similar neighborhood gaps in median and per capita income; percent of residents with a college education or professional occupation; home ownership; and housing vacancy.

"Given that blacks and Hispanics have 30 to 40 percent lower incomes than whites, it's not surprising that they live in worse neighborhoods," said US 2010 Project Director John Logan, author of the study and a Brown University sociologist. "But these results show that even high-earning minorities tend to be segregated into less desirable areas."
