King County Race & Ethnicity
NW Socio-Economic Disparity
Recent estimates from sources including the American Community Survey show continued, deep disparities in the social and economic well-being of Seattle residents.
Ethnic disparities show up in every major indicator of well-being measured: education, income, unemployment rates, home ownership, housing costs burdens, vehicle availability, and others.
The largest disparities in Seattle, as well as in the nation as a whole, are for the Black and Hispanic / Latino populations, compared with White and non-Hispanic populations. Asians and multi-race persons are also doing more poorly than non-Hispanic Whites on many of these indicators.
