Asians?Are they the same? Findings from cognitive interviews
Asian populations in the U.S have grown at faster rates than the U.S. population as a whole. Monolingual Asian-language speakers are rarely included in U.S. surveys, so our understanding of surveys administered in Asian languages is limited. This paper presents findings from cognitive interviews in three Asian languages and reviews similarities and differences in respondents’ interpretations of translated survey messages used in the American Community Survey (ACS) materials.
