Pew: Blacks, Hispanics More Worried than Whites About Contracting Ebola

Blacks and Hispanics are more worried than whites about contracting the Ebola virus, according to a new Pew Research survey.

The poll, conducted Oct. 2-5, found that “nearly half of blacks (47%) and 39% of Hispanics say they are very or somewhat worried about being exposed to the Ebola virus,” while “just 27% of whites are worried” about contracting Ebola. 

In addition, “women (37%) are somewhat more concerned than men (27%) that they or someone in their family will be exposed to Ebola,” and those with with lower levels of education are more worried about getting Ebola than college graduates. 

Pew found that while 22% of college graduates are worried about getting Ebola, “34% of those with some college experience and 38% of those with no more than a high school diploma say they are worried.”
