Ethnic Differences In Homeless Population

On another post I was asked:

     the homeless I see are white, black, & hispanic. I never see homeless people who are of indian descent, middle-eastern, or asian. Surely they must exist; why are there so few of them?

My Answer: 
    Homeless people of every ethic background do exist, but it is obvious that they are not equally represented in homelessness as they are outside of it. I assume this is because of differences in the cultures of the different races. Cultures that are closer knit and more family oriented seem to suffer less homelessness. This would be a good subject for a social science study.
