The Filipinos in Mountain View, California: A Census Type, Socioeconomic Survey.
This work provides an in-depth profile of 1,629 Filipinos living in Mountain View, California. The research was designed to answer questions about how many Filipinos are present, their background, their overall socioeconomic status, their language use, education and use of selected government services. Despite overall appearances of prosperity and success, the dynamic and highly variable Filipino community, it was found, has some problems. The community faces increasing numbers of Filipinos arriving in this country, Filipinos employed in positions which do not utilize their education and training, Filipinos not completing their education, and Filipinos not receiving services for which they are eligible. In addition to details of the research strategies used, this report includes appendices with sample data gathering interview guidelines, a questionnaire, and a publicity poster. (Author/KR)
