In the News: AAPI Data releases mapping tool for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

Published by CSI UCR on

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the fastest-growing racial groups in the country, and the 2020 census is expected to reflect continued rapid population gains among these populations. 

Yet at the same time, the U.S. Census Bureau’s research has shown Asian Americans are the racial group least familiar with the census, as well as those most reluctant to participate. 

Given these twin dynamics, it’s more essential than ever for philanthropy, government, industry, and academia to develop and implement a variety of resources to ensure a complete and accurate count among Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, said Karthick Ramakrishnan, Director of the Center for Social Innovation.
