As of 2010, with the total population of the United States at 310.2 million individuals, White Non-Hispanic Americans are 64.7 percent of the United States population. While the second largest racial group in America is Hispanics with 16 percent of the population. According to the trends, the population is estimated to be at about 439 million in the year 2050. That's quite a rise in the population in the next 40 years (129 million) and who knows the impact it will have on our economy and job availability. It is also estimated that White Non-Hispanic Americans will be less than half the population at this point with 46.3 percent of the population being that race.
Please Note: What about geographical differences in regard to poverty?Although still majority white (79%), the population on Long Island has been becoming steadily more diverse over the last two decades, with a greater proportion of black, Hispanic and Asian populations in particular. Hispanics are the largest minority population at 12.6%. This reflects the national trend toward greater diversity and growth of Hispanic and Asian populations. Nassau County is notably more diverse than Suffolk County (74.3% vs. 83.6%), although Suffolk has a higher percentage of Hispanics (13% vs. 12.1%). The median household income in the region is significantly higher than the national average, and is substantially higher in Suffolk County than Nassau County ($85,994 vs. $76,847).
According surveys, I think high unemployment rate and low employment rate, mental illness and domestic violence can cause people becoming homeless in America. Poverty is closely linked to homeless. Poverty due to high employment rate and low employment rate can trap individuals and can lead to homelessness.

Many homeless people who have jobs and can't avoid homelessness, escaping homelessness is virtually impossible for those without a job.
