Subject:Re: Poverty rates and race

Related to this topic, could anyone offer suggestions on the feasibility of a study of the intergenerational trends of placement with regard to particular demographic groups. In other words, we see the children and grandchildren (cousins, etc.) of families who are poor, in impoverished neighborhoods, and lacking in education and resources/power more often being placed (and for longer). Have studies of this sort been conducted? and is so could anyone suggest pertinent literature? Thanks very much, Bea Hayes, Doctoral Student On Sat, Feb 23, 2013 at 4:14 PM, Michael Durfee > wrote: pa This is from - http://www.childtrendsdatabank.org/?q=node/368 it deserves more response from us. Important question that receives little attention. Blacks die twice as often as whites in the first year of life from many causes. Some years I found the black infant homicide rate higher than that. My career in public health included episodic training in “cultural sensitivity”. That was of some value but incredibly incomplete for addressing black infant homicide. Do you have some references for the rest of us?

Poverty rates of white child welfare youth? Poverty rates of black delinquent youth? Poverty rates of white delinquent youth? While research shows that a high percentage of youth involved with the child welfare and juvenile justice system are extremely poor, I wonder whether black CW and black delinquent youth are any more poor than white CW and delinquent youth.
