DO YOU REPRESENT. . . A CHURCH? | A REGIONAL AGENCY? | A NATIONAL AGENCY?

FROM US LIFESTYLES GROUP 6: ETHNIC AND URBAN DIVERSITY
32 Working Urban Life
     
More than half of this extremely urban population have no education beyond high school, and more than a third do not have a high school diploma. Large numbers use public transportation to travel to work, and nearly one in four households do not own a vehicle. The proportion of renters to home owners is nearly the reverse of national averages, heavily in favor of renters. The segment ranks first in the number or duplexes and small complexes of housing units.
Belief in God and faith involvement rank far below the national average, while the belief that the government should be the primary provider of human welfare services is significantly higher. Far more than average would rather have a strong leader, while relatively few prefer to be left on their own without interference. Contributions to religious organizations, educational institutions and charities are all well below the national average.
Religious affiliations highest above the national average are Orthodox, Catholic (ranks number one of all the segments), Eastern Religions, New Age, Judaism and Unitarian/Universalist.
The primary concerns of this group are Affordable Housing, Neighborhood Crime and Safety, Abusive Relationships, Neighborhood Gangs and Employment Opportunities.
Asked to identify programs and characteristics they would prefer in a church, these households are more likely to indicate Twelve-Step Programs, Care for the Terminally Ill, Active Retirement Programs and Divorce Recovery Programs.
