Reports from UCLA AAAS

The Asian Pacific American Community Development Data Center (APACDDC), a partnership between the National Coalition of Asian Pacific American Community Development (CAPACD) and the UCLA Asian American Studies Center (AASC), was established to serve the census data needs of CAPACD members and other Asian and Pacific Islander community based organizations.

In October 2000, the APACDDC was designated as a Census Information Center (CIC), a cooperative program between the U.S. Census Bureau and 57 national, regional, and local non-profit organizations. The CIC program is designed to increase access to census data for community-based groups with the CICs serving as a clearinghouse of census data, updates and reports. CICs can be found across the nation. To find the CIC nearest you and the services they offer, please go to: http://www.census.gov/clo/www/cic.html

HOW CAN COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PRACTIONERS USE CENSUS DATA?

Strategic Program Planning and Public Policy Development
Use population, housing, and other trend data for planning, determining scope of services and defining future needs.

Advocacy Needs Assessment
Use Census data to assess needs, define target populations and service areas, and measure impact of organization and/or programs.

Developing Small Business Enterprise
Use economic and population data for developing marketing strategies and identifying site locations.


APACDDC RESOURCES
As a designated Census Information Center, we receive all available census-related information. Using the latest Census and other data sources, the Center can produce demographic and economic information on Asian Pacific American communities or provide community-based groups with materials from the following data sources:

2000 CENSUS
Data consists of population and housing data by social and economic characteristics. Such as population distribution, ethnicity/national origin, housing, households, employment, income and poverty, educational attainment, language, immigration, and age distribution. The Center also has similar data for both the 1990 and 1980 Census and can provide figures from these data sets. For free, basic, demographic reports providing findings from Census 2000, Census Briefs are available from the census website at: http://www.census.gov/prod/www/abs/briefs.html

CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY
The Current Population Survey (CPS) is a monthly survey of about 50,000 households conducted by the Census Bureau for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The CPS files and reports provide data on population estimates, educational attainment, income and poverty status, foreign-born persons, and racial/ethnic groups. All of the census-related materials listed above can be useful in supporting community development efforts such as:

  • Program planning
  • Grant writing
  • Budget Planning
  • Developing policy
  • And much more…
