South Asians in the Los Angeles Region: South Asian Network

With a request of the South Asian Network, PERE developed a portrait of South Asians' economic and social conditions using U.S. Census microdata. A wide variety of variables were examined, such as: age, education, income, language ability, recency of migration and naturalization rates. The portrait was broken down by the four top South Asian American groups (Asian Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Sri Lankan), getting even more detail so that the South Asian Network can really use the data to guide their strategy and outreach to empowering community members.
