THE RESULTS: Columbia University’s School of Social Work, one of the world’s leading research universities, and Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, have announced the results from a year-long research project and survey that looked specifically at the health, economic, and sociopolitical conditions of today’s Chinese American population.
The first and largest of its kind project to gather wide-ranging data on Chinese Americans, the “State of Chinese Americans” survey gathered information from nearly 6,500 participants compiling data related to demographics, politics, cultural identity, health, economic security, and social engagement. The research effort was supported by over 100 Chinese American and allied organizations nationwide, who shared the survey with community members in English, traditional Chinese, and simplified Chinese.
Getting disaggregated, accurate and comprehensive data on Chinese Americans will help inform policymakers and the public of the diverse set of opinions, perceptions, and needs of Chinese Americans across the country and develop timely and responsive policies, programs, and services to address those needs.
