AAC | Southeastern US Asian American Profiles

The Asian American Center and Carolina Demography conducted a landmark collaborative study of the Asian American and Pacific Islander population in the Southeast. Disaggregated data, especially of AAPI groups, is one of the most important issues for properly addressing disparities and inequities.

The results, which are shared as one-pagers, offer information on demographics such as race, income, and citizenship status for:

  1. A Nationwide Benchmark
  2. The Southeastern U.S. (states specified)
  3. North Carolina

and four NC metro areas with high Asian American populations:

  1. Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, NC-SC
  2. Durham-Chapel Hill and Raleigh-Cary
  3. Greensboro-High Point and Winston-Salem
  4. Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton
