Asian American Federation Releases Report on Working but Poor: Asian American Poverty in New York City



The Federation has released and held a briefing Oct. 30 on a census-based report on poverty among Asian New Yorkers - a serious, complex issue not well-known to the general public. This first detailed analysis of 2006 American Community Survey and Census 2000 data on poor and low-income Asians in the city describes their demographic traits and patterns, many of which reflect differences from the general population in those income categories. The report also discusses related policy considerations.(October 2008)
