Diverse Communities, Diverse Experiences: A Review of Six Socioeconomic Indicators and Their Impact on Health

General Material

In July of 2003, the U.S. Census Bureau released disaggregated socio-demographic information for more than sixteen different Asian American and five Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders (NHOPI) groups. This report examines these data and focuses on the following six socioeconomic indicators influencing health status: Language, Income and Poverty, Educational Attainment, Immigration and Citizenship, Health Workforce, and Other Household Indicators. These data represent the most comprehensive social, physical, financial, and economic information on AAPIs to date and provide us with an opportunity to gain further insight into ways we can address health disparities and the barriers to quality health care that continue to challenge our communities.
