A Survey by Dr. Paul Wong of Chinese Immigrant Youths in San Francisco, 1970: BASPC Staff Analysis.
This survey was contracted for by the Bay Area Social Planning Council (BASPC) with funding from a Rosenberg Foundation Grant. Questionnaire responses obtained from 255 youths were analyzed to provide the Study Committee on Chinese Newcomers with information about Chinese immigrant youth. Following acquisition, the data was said to have been arranged in chronological order beginning with the youth's family prior to entry into the U. S., current situation, and view of the future, encompassing a section entitled the Family Background of the Chinese Immigrant Youth, the last being concerned with family SES prior to and subsequent to entry into the U.S. A section on the Chinese Immigrant Youth of San Francisco provides descriptions of who the youth are, their status in the San Francisco schools, and how well they are adjusting to conditions in the U.S. The final section, entitled Outlook, examines general satisfaction of the youth with living in the U.S. and also their views about the problems affecting Chinese in San Francisco. A summary of major findings are provided in each section. Thirty-nine tables accompany the document and limitations of the data contained in them are stated in terms of the impossibility of generalizing on the total population of Chinese immigrant youth on the basis of the study sample.
