Columbia University, one of the world’s leading research universities, and Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, today announced that its joint survey on “The State of Chinese Americans” is now open. CAAL is the partner for this survey.
The joint research will provide much-needed data to shed light on the demographic, economic, health, and sociopolitical situations of the Chinese American population, and inform policymakers and the public on the status and needs of the community. The survey data will inform timely and responsive policies, programs, and services.
The nationwide survey will be conducted online in English, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese. All adults self-identifying of Chinese-ethnic origin and living in the United States are encouraged to participate in the anonymous survey here: bit.ly/ChineseAmericanSurvey. The research is carried out by researchers of the China Center for Social Policy at Columbia University School of Social Work and Committee of 100.
We are proud to be partnering with community organizations across the country in rolling out this survey. Our research teams completed a successful pilot study of the survey this summer, with the help of the Chinese-American Planning Council, Chinese American Women in Action, the Community Youth Center of San Francisco, and the U.S. Heartland China Association. Columbia and Committee of 100 invite additional organizations, community members, and interested groups to participate and partner in this critical research project, to amplify the voices of Chinese American communities nationwide.
