The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) welcomes this opportunity to provide comments on data products and tables developed by the Census Bureau using 2020 Census data. APIAHF is the nation’s leading health policy group working to advance the health and well-being of over 20 million Asian Americans (AAs) and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPIs) across the U.S. and its territories. The AA and NHPI population is a diverse group comprised of over 50 different ethnic groups and speaking over 100 different languages. As such, the data collected through the decennial census and American Community Survey (ACS) is very important in understanding the varied population characteristics of AA and NHPI communities across the country. Access to this data for detailed AA and NHPI groups is essential in the work that APIAHF does to address the varying health needs and barriers to access of the populations we serve.
