The Community Health Endowment of Lincoln Place Matters supplement on Poverty and Race/Ethnicity in Lincoln maps the neighborhoods with higher than average poverty and higher than average concentrations of people of color (Black/African American, Asian, American Indian/Alaska Native, Hispanic/Latino/a, or Some Other Race). Areas of higher poverty largely overlap with areas with higher percentages of people of color. Of the census tracts with a higher than average person of color population, 80% also have a higher than average poverty rate.
