Using data collected by the National Survey of America's Families (NSAF), this Snapshot compares changes in seven indicators of family well-being--employment, family income, food hardship, housing hardship, family structure, health insurance, and health status--between 1997 and 1999 by race and ethnicity. Data are grouped into three racial and ethnic categories: white non-Hispanics, black non-Hispanics, and Hispanics of all races (referred to as white, black, and Hispanic, respectively).
