Crazy Impoverished Asians

Who knew that the most impoverished minority race group in King County (containing Seattle) are Asians? The number of Asians living under the federal poverty line is significantly greater than Latinos, Blacks, and Native Americans. I was surprised when looking at Census Bureau data from 2015-2018. Hover over and interact with this Tableau visualization or “viz” to see the numbers.

At the two Seattle Food Banks I visited, I noticed there were a considerable number of elderly Chinese folks. However, I found this result to be surprising!

As of now, WordPress doesn’t let fully embedded Tableau graphics onto posts.
