Asian American COVID-19 Experience

June 9, 2019

After almost a full year since COVID-19 was officially declared a national emergency in the United States, there is still an incomplete picture for how the pandemic is affecting the Asian American population – particularly how its effects have varied across different Asian American subethnicities across the country.
CSAAH has closely followed academic research, news media, and community reports for details on how COVID-19 has impacted Asian American communities and have organized our findings about the six largest Asian American subgroups (presented first in aggregate and then disaggregated from largest to smallest population count) in the tables below.
Until race/ethnicity data collection and reporting standards improve, it is especially important for policymakers to communicate actively with community-based organizations (CBOs), whose first-hand experiences and direct reach into the communities they serve are the best opportunity to fill gaps in the current data landscape.
