    • Description:
      The number of Asian and Pacific Islander births in the United States has increased dramatically in recent years because of the large influx of immigrants from China since the late 1960’s; from Korea, the Philippines, and India since the early 1970’s; and more recently from Southeast Asia.1,2 Between 1978 and 1980 alone, the number of Asian births rose by 30 percent, about 4 times the increase in white (8 percent) and ‘ lack (7 percent) births according to information recorded on ive-birth certificates (table 1). Chinese, Japanese, Hawaiian, and Filipino births all increased more rapidly than did white or black births, but by far the largest rise, 60 percent, was for “Other Asian or Pacific Islander” births. This category includes births identified as Asian Indian, Cambodian, Korean, Laotian, and Vietnamese, as well as other Asian or Pacific Islanders. mv32_10sacc.pdf
