New book examines demographic trends of APA community

The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) has announced the release of a new book, The New Face of Asian Pacific America: Numbers, Diversity, and Change in the 21st Century, which offers comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of demographic and cultural changes in the Asian Pacific American (APA) community.

"OCA is very excited to be a part of this project," said Raymond Wong, OCA National President. The organizationís 50 chapters will be donating copies of the book to local libraries and schools across the nation.

The New Face of Asian Pacific America was written by leading Asian-American scholars and journalists. The co-editors of the book are Eric Lai of AsianWeek and Dennis Arguelles of the UCLA Asian American Studies Center.

The book draws upon data from the U.S. Census 2000 and other quantitative surveys. It is divided into sections by ethnicity as well as geography, and provides many tables, maps, and charts of demographic data of APAs.

"The data provided in this book provides a roadmap for OCA to advocate effectively to meet the needs of our communities," said Christine Chen, OCA Executive Director. "We need this information to educate our policy makers, funders, and many others from the private and public sector about Asian Pacific Americans."

The book may be ordered from the resource section of OCAís website at <www.ocanatl.org>.
