U.S. CENSUS BUREAU RELEASES MORE VIETNAMESE AND SOUTHEAST ASIAN AMERICAN-ORIGIN DATA
FROM 2000 CENSUS

The U.S. Census Bureau has begun releasing more detailed Vietnamese, Hmong, Cambodian and Lao origin
data from the 2000 census. The newly available data may be viewed at the census website at www.census.gov
in the American FactFinder section. The new data is part of Summary File 2. It includes the variables of age
group distribution and gender distribution, household tenure (home ownership vs. rental), household size,
family size, and household type. The data is being released on a state-by- state basis. Thus far, the
household, family, and age group data has been released for the following states with significant Southeast
Asian populations: Hawaii, Maryland, Oregon, Rhode Island, Alaska, Utah, and Iowa. Data is being released for
additional states weekly. The data may be tabulated for entire states or for cities, counties and even census
tracts within particular cities. Socioeconomic data will be released later this year. Data related to the same
variables is also available for more than 200 other ethnic and population groups. Basic population data for the
Vietnamese-origin population as well as Cambodians, Hmong, and Lao was released by the census in the
Summer of 2001 and may be viewed as part of Summary File 1 on the census website or at
www.hmongstudies.org

This new data will likely be of considerable interest to many educators, social science researchers, and human
service agency professionals who work with the Hmong. Individuals with further questions about how to access
this newly available census data may contact Mark Pfeifer by e-mail.
