About Us

The Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (AA & NHPI) Dataset Repository is a collaborative project between AAPIData.com and the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA).

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date resource on datasets on Asian Americans and NHPIs that are publicly available.  With each entry, we provide key facts including the topics covered by the dataset, the year of the data collection, sample sizes by race and detailed ethnicity, and a select list of publications that use the dataset.

We have tagged each entry based on ethnicity, language, research method, year, and data format.  These can be clicked on our main page, or found via the Search function.

In addition to the resources listed here, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics provide a vast array of data products that can be accessed via American FactFinder and DataFerrett (for advanced users).

If you have any suggestions on improving this data resource, please contact Karthick Ramakrishnan, associate professor at University of California, Riverside.
