A European-American homeless individual is more likely to report having been physically abused as a child, and a European-American woman is more likely to report having been sexually abused. In a study of homeless adolescents, European-American adolescents reported coming from families that were more dysfunctional than those of their AfricanAmerican peers. European-American adolescents were also more likely to have experienced a family characterized by verbal and physical aggression, conflict, and a lack of cohesion.

In fact, many scholars view homelessness simply as an extreme form of poverty. Research suggests that the current homeless population is suffering from more extreme poverty than the homeless population before the 1980s, whose income was three times higher than the income of the current homeless.

For example, some have found that rates of mental illness are much higher in both homeless and 4——— African-Americans poor.
