A Community of Contrasts

APALC, as part of the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, releases a national demographic report on Asian Americans.  Based on the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau and other federal agencies, A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans in the United States, 2011 provides detailed socioeconomic data and ethnic-specific information and generates significant national interest in the growth of Asian American communities around the nation. More than 300 newspapers, broadcast and radio stations across the nation cover the report.

Asian American Voting Trends on Proposition 8

APALC releases data showing Asian American voting trends on Proposition 8 during the November 2008 election. The November 2008 Southern California Voter Survey is the largest and most comprehensive exit poll of Asian Americans in California. The 2008 Voter Survey shows that, similar to other racial and ethnic groups, age and religiosity are determining factors in voting on Proposition 8, with younger voters and those who responded that they never attend religious services significantly more likely to oppose Prop 8.

Demographic Data Reporting

 APALC launches the first in a series of reports providing detailed demographic data on Asian American and Pacific Islander ethnic groups with the publication of The Diverse Face of Asians and Pacific Islanders in Los Angeles County. This is followed in 2005 with the release of The Diverse Face of Asians and Pacific Islanders in California (covering Southern California, the Central Valley, and the Bay Area); The Diverse Face of Asians and Pacific Islanders in Orange County, and The Diverse Face of Asians and Pacific Islanders in San Diego County.

A Devastating Wait: Family Unity and the Immigration Backlogs
