Abstract

The numbers of Asian American men are continually increasing, yet limited research -- that could better inform how best to improve quality of care -- exists on this understudied population. This study examined health outcome differences across ethnically diverse groups of Asian American men in California, compared with non-Hispanic White men.

Using data from the 2007, 2009, and 2011-2012 California Health Interview Survey, distributions of health status and health-related characteristics for 43,030 men in various racial/ethnic groups (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, Other Asian Americans, and non-Hispanic Whites) were calculated. Compared with non-Hispanic Whites, odds of reporting fair or poor health were higher among Vietnamese, while odds of diabetes were higher among Korean, Filipino, and Other Asian Americans. Odds of high blood pressure were higher among Filipino and Vietnamese but lower among Other Asian Americans, while odds of disability were lower across all ethnic groups except Filipino and Vietnamese.
