Subject:Re: Poverty rates and race

Hello again, Are these results published somewhere? I noticed this article, Change Trajectories During Home-Based Services With Chronic Child Welfare Cases, but did not see the race comparisons.

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.
