Asian American Reference Data Directory.
RJ Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
The directory assesses current reference materials relating to the health, education, and social welfare of Asian Americans. The directory also includes reference materials in such areas as demography, socioeconomics, employment and training, culture, immigration, and housing. Intended for use by the Office for Asian American Affairs, state and local governments, institutions, and scholars, the directory serves research, planning, evaluation, and data bank functions. The 480 reference materials that are abstracted include data developed by HEW and other federal agencies, state and local agencies, universities, and individuals. The introduction relates that the methods used in collecting the materials include a six-month background review of sources on Asian Americans, telephone and mail contact with over 1,000 agencies and individuals, and communication with Asian-American studies programs. The project director reports that materials were judged by criteria of relevance to HEW, currentness, uniqueness, and comprehensiveness. Each abstract provides a citation to the reference materials including author, title, publisher, funding sources, ethnic identification, subject descriptors, geographic reference, data variables, narrative description, and availability of the source document.
