HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW
ABOUT ASIAN NEW YORKERS?
USING DATA TO TELL OUR COMMUNITY’S STORY
AAF produces research reports and briefs to draw attention to the needs of Asian American communities, and to urge policymakers to make changes that will allow the Asian community to get essential services more easily. Using data to tell the story of our community also helps to unify the community around views on issues that will have an impact on their everyday lives. The Asian community continues to receive a tiny share of the funding invested by the government in mainstream communities. We hope our reports will help city agencies, public and private philanthropy, and the media to understand us and our needs better.
Some of our recent reports and briefs have highlighted Asian American employment, poverty, seniors, mental health services for Asian New Yorkers, contributions and challenges of Asian small businesses, and city government funding for Asian communities. All of them are free and can be easily downloaded from this site.
