dc.description.abstract This study attempts to explore poverty among selected ethnic/racial groups within Indiana, the United States, and the world. Data from the World Factbook and the United States Census 2000 are used to construct various graphics that suggest correlations between ethnicity and poverty within global, national, state, and county populations. Spearman's Correlation Coefficient is used to expose any linkages between ethnicity and poverty. Whites, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans are tested for correlations with the following indicators of poverty: measures of income, family structure, housing pattern, educational background, employment, vehicle ownership, and poverty threshold.
