A Study of Selected Socio-Economic Characteristics of Ethnic Minorities Based on the 1970 Census. Volume II: Asian Americans.
RJ Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
Phase 1 of a two-phase study conducted by the Urban Associates, Inc. for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to determine the barriers to culturally-relevant delivery of its services to three ethnic minorities (namely, American Indians, persons of Spanish origin, and Asian Americans) found a scarcity of data on the numbers and characteristics of these ethnic minority consumers, their needs, and other key indicators indispensible for effective HEW planning. This volume, along with two others on American Indians and persons of Spanish origin compose one aspect examined by Phase II of the study. It focuses on generating specific national and local data on selected socio-economic characteristics of five Asian American sub-groups from the 1970 census. Characteristics examined for Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino sub-groups include recent immigration, population, family, education, employment, income, poverty, and sources of income. Sections on Korean Americans and Hawaiians provide separate analyses of these populations in addition to the characteristics already mentioned. Data for each major Asian group is summarized in tables, while highlights of the study are presented in summary form. An Asian American glossary and sources on Asian Americans are provided. (AM)
