Who We Are: Blacks brings you the facts you need about the size and characteristics of this fast-growing and politically powerful minority. Its 11 chapters examine their attitudes (a new chapter), education, health, housing, income, labor force status, living arrangements, population, spending, time use, and wealth.
In addition to detailed 2010 census counts of the numbers of blacks nationally and by state and metropolitan area, Who We Are: Blacks includes the latest socioeconomic data on the black population. It has detailed spending data for black households and the latest update on black household wealth including the impact of the Great Recession on black net worth, assets, and debt. Results from the American Time Use Survey can also be found here, profiling black time use and comparing it to the averages. Attitudinal data from the General Social Survey compare and contrast black attitudes with those of Asians, Hispanics, and whites on a whole range of issues.
While the government collected the data in Who We Are: Blacks, the tables are not reprints from government reports. Instead, New Strategist s editors spent hundreds of hours scouring web sites, compiling numbers into meaningful statistics, and creating tables with calculations that reveal the trends. New Strategist has done the work for you, delving into the data and providing analysis and comparisons, placing the important information about blacks at your fingertips.
The substantial educational, employment, and economic gains made by blacks over the past few decades and documented in these pages, are contrary to popular perception and media portrayals, but these realities are of utmost importance to policymakers and business leaders. Who We Are: Blacks gives you the information you need to discover and become familiar with the large and growing black population and its many unique characteristics.
