Data on Asian American Communities


This report by the Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL) is written for policy makers, healthcare providers and systems, and community leaders to provide insights and recommendations that can immediately improve on-going efforts to address COVID-19 infections, prevent further deaths, and ensure that future prevention strategies are responsive and relevant when serving Asian Minnesotans. This report uses preliminary data on COVID-19 mortality rates among Asian Minnesotans. It draws attention to the disproportionate number of COVID-19 mortality rates among Hmong, Karen, and Karenni residents to demonstrate the critical importance of data disaggregation.

Health Atlas

The Health Atlas includes prevalence estimates of numerous health indicators in AANH&PI in national, state and local datasets - with data presented to the smallest disaggregated group possible. This provides important data on access and other underlying conditions (e.g., diabetes, obesity) that place our communities at increased risk of adverse COVID-19 sequelae. Contributors are Sheri Daniels (Papa Ola Lokahi), APIAHF, Dr. Nia Aitaoto (PI-CoPCE), and many others. This was developed from the last four years of efforts.

AAPI COVID Needs Assessment Project

A project led by researchers of color, centering communities of color, championed by Congressional members of color, including the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. The National Urban League, a civil rights organization, advocated and administered this project. Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy and Leadership (APPEAL), the NYU Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH), and Pacific Islander Center of Primary Care Excellence (PI-CoPCE) contributed to this work.

Beyond Invisibility: Critical Steps in Disaggregated Data for AANHPIs

Join National Council of Asian Pacific Islander Physicians (NCAPIP) alongside Dr. Keawe Kaholokula (University of Hawai’i) and Dr. Nadia Islam (CSAAH/NYU Langone Health) as they discuss strategic opportunities to get better disaggregated AA and NH&PI data during the COVID-19 pandemic - an essential step for achieving health equity.
