Asian Americans just as segregated as they were 20 years ago, new study says

Asian Americans are almost just as segregated from whites as they were 20 years ago, according to a new report co-written by two Brown University researchers. The study found that Chinese and Indians — two of the largest Asian American populations — are just as segregated as Hispanics, while Vietnamese are just as segregated as African Americans, KPCC reports. Japanese Americans have the lowest levels of segregation, according to the report. The high number of U.S.-born Japanese may account for the group's assimilation. 

The report divides Asian Americans into six nationalities — Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, Koreans, Japanese, and Vietnamese — and compares their growth and influence on both each other and other groups. Authors John R. Logan and Weiwei Zhang argue that lumping Asian Americans into a larger group can lead to misleading data. 

"The Asian presence in this country was once symbolized by Chinatowns in major cities," the report says. "And whereas Asians have often been thought of uniformly as a single 'model minority,' it is time to recognize the very large differences that exist between the Chinese, Filipinos, Indians, and other major Asian groups."

Read the full report and listen to an interview with Logan at KPCC.
