    New census report shows poverty hitting Ohio black and Latino populations hardest

    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    COLUMBUS — A new census report shows two out of the 10 poorest big cities in the U.S. are in Ohio.

    The American Community Survey released Thursday shows Cleveland has a 34 percent poverty rate. That makes it the No. 3 poorest city with a population of 200,000 or more, behind Detroit and San Bernardino, Calif.

    Cincinnati is seventh, with 30.6 percent of residents living in poverty.
