Filipinos Are the Largest Asian Group in California--New Study

Filipinos are the largest Asian minority group in California today.They also rank second only to Indians for having the least poor and least low-income community members among all Asians in the state. But they also have the lowest admission rates in the University of California system. These are some of the findings of a comprehensive new study of the Asian American community in California, A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, 2013 by the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, a coalition of several Asian American advocacy groups.
