New From Data.gov: AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) Data Catalog

From Whitehouse.gov:

Within the expanding AAPI community, there are unmet needs ranging from health care to language access in which the federal government can help bridge the gaps. But how are federal agencies and policymakers able to do so when statistics and information are unavailable or difficult to locate?

To address this issue, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI), in partnership with Data.gov, have created Data.gov/AAPI, a single place to find government data on AAPIs. We are launching it, to start, with approximately 2,000 datasets and reports from nearly 50 federal, state, county, and city sources pertaining to the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander community. These data, which have been categorized and tagged according to a wide variety of themes, can help federal agencies and policymakers understand and address disparities in socioeconomic status, educational attainment, health, and other areas of importance.
