The Racial Identification of Biracial Children with One Asian Parent: Evidence from the 1990 Census.
Xie, Yu; Goyette, Kimberly
Social Forces, v76 n2 p547-70 Dec 1997
In a 1990 census sample of 7,808 biracial children with one Asian parent, 38.8% were identified as Asian, indicating that racial identification of these children is highly optional. Children's identification as Asian was related to awareness of cultural heritage (assimilation factors, parent educational level), as well as factors unique to various ethnic groups. Contains 39 references. (SV)
