There are 157 black women for every 100 black men while there are approximately 450 white men for every 100 white women in this income bracket!
Christine Whelan's findings about getting married later seem to hold true for black SWANS. When we compare currently divorced 30-34 year-olds in this income bracket, there's another glaring difference.
A far greater percentage of black women have already been divorced than anyone else in this age group!
Could it be that the highest-earning black women do get married at similar rates as other women by their 30s, but also get divorced more quickly? Or are these stats misleading due to smaller sample size than the full census that's taken every 10 years?
This is food for thought that merits further qualitative and quantitative research.
