Poverty Rate by Race/Ethnicity
Blacks, Latinos and those who identified as two or more races show the highest poverty rate for the City of Dubuque (at less than 100% of the poverty level). These numbers both come in higher than the state of Iowa, where 36.8% of Blacks and 26% of Latinos are at less than 100% of the poverty line (U.S. Census). That rate fits with the equity profile’s unemployment statistics, as these minority groups also had a high percentage of unemployment in the community.
