How much do we really know about the Asian American population in the United States? Did you know that the Asian population is the fastest growing race in the past decade? From 2000 to 2010 the United States has experienced a 43% increase from 10.2 million to 14.7 million! These numbers might not mean much to you, but they should! That's why Hyphen is teaming up with the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders to release census related blog stories. Find out more by reading Time to Get in Tune with your Census written by Nicole Wong.
It's important to know how these statistics affect different aspects of our lives such as career choice, health and media. It's time we learn more about each other, what the size of our population means, and what we can do to further ourselves! The next post for the census-blog us set to be released on August 15th so look out for that!
