Washington: Barack Obama rose to become the first black American President in 2009 but African-Americans are faring slightly worse relative to their white counterparts than they did last year, according to an index released today.

The 2011 Equality Index issued stands at 71.5 per cent, compared to a revised index last year of 72.1 per cent, the National Urban League said as it released its annual report, called The State of Black America.

An equality index of less than 100 per cent suggests blacks are doing worse relative to whites, while an index greater than 100 per cent suggests blacks are doing better.

The league attributed the 2011 drop to a decline in the economics index, driven by housing and wealth factors, and to a decline in the health index, driven by children's health.
