Profiles of Asians in Sacramento. Final Report.
This project was undertaken to provide more information on the condition of Asians. More specifically, it sought to: (1) obtain descriptive and demographic data on Asians; (2) determine the extent of usage of existing social services. Structural and attitudinal factors which facilitate or inhibit usage were examined; (3) identify what Asians perceive to be the needs of their community and explore the potential for organizing the community on the basis of these needs; again, various factors which may have contributed to this potential for organizing the community were examined; and, (4) collect data on the younger generation of Asians; in this way, a cross-generational comparison of attitudes and values could be made. The data were obtained from interviewing a sample of Asian families in the Sacramento area. In Sacramento, the three main groups of Asians are the Chinese, the Japanese, and the Filipinos. These are the only Asian groups included in the sample. A total of 302 families was interviewed: 148 were Chinese, 102 were Japanese, and 52 were Filipino. Two Chinese, one male and one female, and two Japanese, one male and one female, and one male Filipino were selected as interviewers. In all cases, these interviewers were bilingual. Each interviewer was responsible for interviewing his own ethnic group. (Author/JM)
