After months of number crunching, I'm excited to announce that today, the results from the 2016 Asian American Man Study are publicly available! Divided into seven sections: demographics, race & identity, stereotypes, media, dating, politics & religion, and closing statements, it is one of the most comprehensive analyses of Asian American men that is publicly available anywhere. As always, we've worked hard to ensure the data is clean, and the analysis is done without bias or agenda.
How does the 2016 study differ from our initial study conducted in 2015?
First off, there's value in simply replicating or reconfirming prior results, which we were able to do in many cases. But beyond that, we have better representation and new open-ended questions to explore.
Over the coming weeks and months, I'll be writing up deep dives of each of the seven sections, adding commentary from respondents and my own experience and views. I'd like to ask all of you to promote our findings in the communities and platforms you're a part of. Let's help more people understand what Asian American men believe, experience, and stand for.
The Asian American Man Study is an annual study an annual survey of the experiences and beliefs of American men of East, Southeast, and South Asian descent. It is administered by Jason Shen, a first-generation Chinese-American.
