Ethnic and Gender Subgroup Differences in Education, Employment, and Incarceration in the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community
MetadataShow full item record
The stratification of opportunities and disparate outcomes for Black and Latino boys and men has been well documented. However, there remains a lack of awareness about the extent to which these issues are relevant for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. This brief focuses on key status and leading indicators for the mobility and life course outcomes of AAPI boys and men, demonstrating the ways in which broad sweeping generalizations about the population miss incidences of differential access to educational opportunities and significant educational challenges. This brief reports on analysis of both differences between men from different AAPI subgroups, as well as differences between men and women within AAPI subgroups. Data reveal the need for greater inclusion of the AAPI community in efforts to address the educational challenges facing all men of color.
