Although a higher number of non-Hispanic White residents fall in the medically underserved category, higher proportions of racial and ethnic minorities are represented among that group. Additionally, African Americans are more likely than Whites to face extreme commutes of over an hour (10.3 percent vs. 7.3 percent). 12 A number of studies have found that weak and negative employment growth in areas where Blacks reside and little access to jobs (as measured by travel times) can explain part of the differences in the black-white unemployment differential. 13 Table 2: Distribution of Unemployed by Local Area, averaged 2008-2010 estimates, in percentages Source:� American Community Survey, 2008-2010 Public Use Microdata Files.� Local area is defined as a Census Bureau Public Use Microdata Area (PUMA).
