Household Income and Economic Hardship Among Asian and Pacific Islander Groups in San Diego County (2015)


CPI Report


Asians/Pacific Islander (API) is a broad category which obscures the diversity and heterogeneity of the people to whom it refers. However, because most of the API ethnic/ national origin groups make up a relatively small share of the overall US population, it can be challenging for demographers and other researchers to carry out detailed analysis using survey data. In an effort to address this, we use the most recent five years (2009-2013) of survey data from the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) to examine household income and economic hardship in San Diego County.
