Recent Population Growth and Change among Asian-Americans.
Vann, Barbara H.; Ryu, Jai P.
Data from the 1990 Census and recent Current Population Survey reports are used to describe population change among Asian-Americans. Comparisons are made between Asian-Americans and the general non-Asian population and among Asian-Americans, focusing on four subgroups: Chinese, Filipinos, Japanese, and Koreans. Specific features examined in comparing Asian-American groups include: (1) immigration history; (2) demographic characteristics; and (3) explanations of adjustment to U.S. culture. Implications of the growth of Asian-American communities for future racial and ethnic relations in the United States are explored, for example, the relationship between Asian immigrants in the inner cities and inner city residents of longer standing. Six tables are attached. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/LBG)
