IPR is featuring research and some of the many AAPI pioneers who have had an impact on the world today in celebration of AAPI Heritage Month.

The Pew Research Center analyzed Asian Americans experience, attitudes, and views on their identity and diverse cultures.

A survey of over 7,000 Asian American adults was conducted from July 5, 2022 – Jan. 27, 2023.

Key findings include:

1.) 20% of respondents said they have hidden a part of their heritage (i.e., ethnic food, cultural practices, ethnic clothing, or religious practices) from others who are not Asian, in some cases out of fear of embarrassment or discrimination.
2.) 24% said they are very or extremely informed about the history of Asians in the United States.
3.) 37% of Asian immigrant adults think of themselves as the “typical American,” compared to 69% of Asians born in the U.S.
4.) 68% said it was extremely or very important for the U.S. Asian community to have a national leader advancing its concerns.
