Abstract

Despite their reputation as a healthy, successful minority group, Asians in the United States have serious health problems. Using CHIS 2003 and 2005 data, in addition to other data sources, this study compiled data from 25 Asian ethnic groups in California. According to the report, findings include:
  • In total, more than 27 percent of Asians die cancer, the study found. In comparison, cancer claims about 23 percent of whites, 22 percent of blacks and 20 percent of Latinos.
  • Koreans, Vietnamese and Chinese specifically suffer high rates of liver cancer.
  • About 32 percent of Hmong live under the poverty line.
  • Thirty-three percent of Koreans don't have health insurance.
This publication was prepared for the Honorable Mike Eng(Assemblymember, 49th Assembly District) and the California Asian Pacific Islander Joint Legislative Caucus and by the UC AAPI Policy Multi-Campus Research Program Health Work Group.
