Launch of Houston Area Asian Survey March 1[3/1/2011]


BY Alex Wang [ February 27, 2011 at 12:00:57 ]

In 1995 and 2002, with the financial support of the Houston community, researchers at Rice University expanded the annual “Houston Area Survey” to include representative samples of 500 Harris County Asians, the only systematic surveys of the entire Asian population in any American city.

The research is an invaluable resource in providing scientifically sound facts and figures about the migration patterns, life experiences, attitudes, and beliefs of Houston’s varied Asian communities. This information has been used in research, grant proposals, business planning and marketing.
Nine years have passed since the last Asian survey. The U.S.-born Asian second generation is rapidly coming of age. Many Harris County Asians continue to struggle, facing significant challenges that Houston’s leaders need to understand in order to better serve these communities. It is clearly time to replicate and expand this research.

We hope you will support this project and join with other Asian American civic and business leaders in spearheading the effort. Please join us for a special kickoff event (invitation below), celebrating the launch of the 2011 “Houston Area Asian Survey,” on Tuesday, March 1.

The Kinder Institute, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Klineberg, will underwrite more than half of the additional costs (estimated at $225,000) required to complete the interviews, the data analyses, and the writing of a full report on the 2011 Asian Survey.

It requires an extraordinary effort to reach a representative sample of the area’s Asian residents. The 2002 survey began with 65,000 randomly generated phone numbers, conducted 24,267 interviews with a respondent in each household reached with these numbers, identified 741 that contained an Asian adult, completed 500 interviews with a randomly selected Asian adult in each household, and conducted 25% of the interviews in Vietnamese, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Korean.

Of all the Asian respondents, 30.4% were Vietnamese, 26.3% were Chinese, 23.3% were Asian Indians, 7.9% were Filipinos, 3.8% were Koreans, and 8.4% were from other Asian countries. According to the U.S. Census for Harris County, the Asian population increased by 76% between 1990 and 2000 and by another 44.4% between 2000 and 2010.

After completing the 2011 survey, the Kinder Institute will publish a complete report (with donors’ names prominently acknowledged), analyzing the continuities and changes that have occurred among Asians in Houston since 1995, in the context of comparable research conducted among Anglos, blacks, and Latinos, and it will be in a position to assess systematically the full range of the quality and complexity of interethnic relationships in this region of burgeoning diversity.

Please come to the March 1 event to learn more about the 2011 Houston Area Asian Survey.
