Welfare Expenditures by Ethnic Group

Written By: Robert Rector

----------

At present, over 70 means-tested aid programs provide cash, food, housing, medical care, social services, and training to lower income persons in the United States. Among the largest programs are Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, the Earned Income Tax Credit, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and child nutrition programs.

Total means-tested welfare expenditures by federal and state governments amounted to roughly $384 billion in 1998. Of that sum,$212 billion--55 percent--went to white recipients. Some $105 billion--28 percent--went to black recipients, and $69 billion--17 percent--went to Hispanic recipients.

Aid to black and Hispanic welfare recipients is greater in proportion to the size of their populations than is aid to white recipients. This can be seen by determining the average welfare expenditure per person for each ethnic group.

As a group, the 207 million white residents in the U.S. population receive $212 billion in benefits. As a group, then, they receive some $1,022 per person in welfare aid.

There are some 30 million Hispanic residents in the U.S., and Hispanics as a group receive $69 billion in welfare, or roughly $2,210 per person. As a group, the 33 million black residents in the U.S. receive $105 billion in welfare aid, or roughly $3,230 per person.

These figures represent the hypothetical amount each individual would receive if total welfare spending for each ethnic group were spread evenly among all members of that group. Consequently, the figures should not be interpreted to represent the aid actually received by persons on welfare--those numbers would be far higher.

In addition, the per-capita figures should not be interpreted to mean the typical black or Hispanic welfare recipient receives higher welfare benefits than the typical white recipient. In fact, welfare aid per recipient would tend to be similar across all three ethnic groups.

The per-capita welfare spending figures are higher for black recipients because the percentage of the total black population that receives welfare is greater than the percentage of the white population that receives welfare. The same is true for Hispanic recipients.

The higher rates of welfare receipt among blacks and Hispanics are largely the result of the erosion of marriage among those groups. In 1998, 69.1 percent of black children were born outside of wedlock. Among Hispanics the number was 41.6 percent, while among non-Hispanic whites the number was 21.9 percent.

Sixty per cent of Blacks are not unemployed nor on welfare.
As for the erosion of marriage, that is a universal pheenomenon, with most members of ALL racial groups being single even when of marriageable age. The reasons for this is partly economic and partly cultural.
The economic ravages of capitalism is more severe in Black and Latin communities than in white. Where it is severe enough among whites, you see unemployment and destroyed families.
And finally, the cultural shifts since the 1960s are such that many people (both sexes and all racial groups) willingly either choose not to marry or choose to greatly delay marriage--sometimes delaying until it is too late.

No you don't, maybe for the U.S. Gov't Accounting Ofc. Otherwise, you'd realize that it all depends on which county/state for which you are employed within the DPSS system?
In Riverside County, Cali, which has a greater pop than most states, there are countless White families currently eking out a subsistant living off of only food stamps and state unemployment checks which was continued BY PRESIDENT OBAMA a couple mos. ago over the objections of the Republican Congress.
Furthermore, there have been and still are many White children between six and seventeen, mostly boys, being reared by Foster Care due to lack of qualified families and available adoption candidates.
Stop pointing the finger at Blacks or Mexicans as the all encompassing problem with America.

You are an insane worry-wart. Many Hispanics are Spanish Whites, and Latins constitute 56% of ALL inter-racial marriages, by far the highest rate. So when you speak of hispanics, you also speak for Whites as well.

Blacks make up 12.6 %of US pop, 60%of that number are on welfare assistance of some kind.
Fact not racist!
Research the % of blacks employed by civil service vs % of black pop!!! The US Gov is the
Major employer of the black pop. Civil Service is a racist organization and should be taken to court
For reverse discrimination !! If white try getting a Civil Service job!!!
Fact not fiction, look it up for yourself!!

In California our union's most populous state, it's still African Americans taking the top spot as far as unemployment insurance claims in large part do to discrimination, followed by Latinos, then Whites, then Azians who have the lowest numbers on sate aid.
Hope everybody enjoyed taking MLK Day off from work....while simultaneously spewing hatred for this great historical figure, alos unpatriotically hating our President.
