This survey explores the attitudes and experiences of the Asian community in the Bay Area, which has the largest Asian population in the country. The Kaiser Family Foundation and San Jose Mercury News collaborated on the survey.

The Bay Area is home to the largest Asian population in the continental United States. In 2002, the census estimated that roughly one in five Bay Area adults was of Asian decent. Recognizing the importance and impact of this population in our community, the San Jose Mercury News and the Kaiser Family Foundation joined forces to explore the attitudes and experiences of the Asian community.

The Bay Area Asian community includes people from many countries with different cultures, languages and religions. Most Asian adults in the Bay Area were not born in the United States, though many were. The survey involved nearly 1,100 Asians from various backgrounds, and examines their experiences with and attitudes about different aspects of their lives in the Bay Area, such as community, politics and government, the workplace, and the education of their children.
