Members of the Hmong ethnic group have lived in the mountains and hills of Southern China and Southeast Asia for thousands of years, though the Hmong have never had their own country.

In the US, the gap between household incomes has resulted in decreased community coherence. (Culhane-Pera, ., 7558)
