Taiwanese have highest home ownership rates in California, new report says

Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) released a report on Feb. 4 stating that 71 percent of the Taiwanese population in California owns a home, higher than the 64 percent of whites who own a home and more than any other ethnicity in California, World Journal (世界日报) reports. 

APALC's report broke down the Asian population in California by language, housing, income, health, and education. While Taiwanese top the list of homeowners, 12 percent of the state's Taiwanese population belong to low-income families, and 9 percent are below the state poverty line. Chinese from mainland China — the second largest minority population in Los Angeles County according to the U.S. Census — have a higher percentage of low-income families with 27 percent. Twelve percent are below the poverty line.

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the Asian population in Los Angeles County alone has increased by 20 percent since 2000, reaching 15 percent of the state's population. Filipino Americans are the largest minority population in the county with more than 84,000 residents. Chinese from mainland China make up more than 70,000, and Taiwanese about 20,000.

  1. I like Taiwanese Americans, despite generally having a huge superiority complex over other sub-populations of Chinese. Is that complex justified? Well, yes and no. But either way, they have one.
