AAPI Data publishes demographic data and policy research on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are the fastest growing racial groups in the United States. Accompanying this rise is a growing interest in these populations from journalists and public officials. There is also a growing number of data sources, reports by government agencies, and academic studies on AAPI needs and concerns.
We seeks to make policy research and demographic data on AAPIs more accessible. We strive to keep our information current and useful, with data and research that are as rigorous and accurate as possible. We also regularly help journalists, community organizations, and decision makers make better sense of data and research.
The idea for Racial Data sprang out of AAPI Data, which started as a portal for data and research on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and soon grew to become an indispensable national resource for journalists, policymakers, and community organizations alike.
We hope to recreate that magic for all communities of color, thanks to an incredible team of publicly-engaged researchers. In addition to the individuals below, we thank UC Riverside’s Ethnic and Gender Programs for their contributions to this project, including: African Student Programs, Asian Pacific Student Programs, Chicano Student Programs, Middle Eastern Student Center, Native American Student Programs, Undocumented Student Programs and the Women’s Resource Center.
Inland California Rising
Inland California Rising draws on leaders from the philanthropic, business, non-profit, and public sectors who are united in their desire to turbo-charge progress for Inland California, in ways that also benefit the state overall. Initial backers of this effort include the mayors from the major Inland California cities, local philanthropy from each community, higher education leaders, and a rapidly growing coalition of civic and community leaders.
We are grateful to the James Irvine Foundation for their early support of this initiative. The Center for Social Innovation at UC Riverside is providing initial data and staff support for Inland California Rising.
The Inland Empire region of Riverside County and San Bernardino County has over 4.5 million residents and has grown dramatically since 2010. The #2020Census is critical to help ensure fair representation and funding for our region, as well as accurate market intelligence for a rapidly growing community.
The Inland Empire is also coming together in incredible ways—with collaborations across sectors and across regions—that are building our collective ability to understand our diverse communities and the policies affecting them.
This website contains information on various Census-related activities and resources for the Inland Empire.
SoCal Policy Forum
Southern California has a wealth of research and policy expertise, on matters ranging from housing and transportation, to immigration, economic development, technological change, and civic engagement. However, many discussions on these topics occur in specialized fragments and silos, with few opportunities to engage and inform the larger public.
SoCal Policy Forum (SPF) is a platform that regularly convenes policy experts in Southern California on timely issues that can better engage and inform the larger public.
