The Asian and Pacific Islander Population in the United States: March 1997 (Update) (PPL-108)

These tables present March 1997 Current Population Survey (CPS) data on the demographic, social and economic characteristics of the Asian and Pacific Islander population in the United States. Topics covered include geographic distribution, marital status, educational attainment, family and household type, labor force status, occupational distribution, earnings, family income, tenure, and poverty status. Data are presented for the United States and the West region.

Standard errors for estimated numbers and percentages are provided in summary tables 1 and 2, and in family and household tables 4 and 5.

NOTE: Percentages are rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent; therefore, the percentages in a distribution do no always add to exactly 100 percent. The totals, however, are always shown as 100. Moreover, individual figures are rounded to the nearest thousand without being adjusted to group totals, which are independently rounded; percentages are based on the unrounded numbers.

Symbols Used in Tables

  • - = Represents zero or rounds to zero.
  • X = Not applicable
  • S = Median earnings and standard errors are not shown when the base is less than or equal to 5,000 persons
