Description: Asian Americans in New York City: A Decade of Dynamic Change 2000-2010 represents a new snapshot of our communities showing that with the increasing growth and diversity come new challenges and opportunities. The report raises important issues regarding the future of the Asian community in New York City. As our population shifts to new neighborhoods, how will government agencies and community service providers respond to the needs in our community. As the number of Asians actively participating in our political process, whether as candidates, voters or donors, how will Asians negotiate the new challenges and responsibilities of their new place at the table? Increasing economic contributions of Asian New Yorkers bring up questions of how Asian small businesses, which are more likely to have paid employees, expand and grow from local to regional to even international markets. We hope that the report will stimulate discussions within our communities, with elected officials, policy makers and community leaders that will result in policies rooted in data and the hard won experiences of our member agencies. This report is the first in a series of reports based on the 2010 Census and the American Community Survey. Through research, the Federation hopes to broaden public understanding of the Asian American community, stimulate discussion of community concerns, support our member agencies in addressing community needs, and inform policies that advance the well-being of Asian Americans.
