Summary

CKA's national research survey will assess the current political & socio-economic conditions of the Korean American community. Led by Professor Taeku Lee, George Johnson Professor of Law & Political Science at U.C. Berkeley, we will 1) analyze existing Korean American population data; and 2) conduct a new national survey for Korean Americans across the U.S. to pull new insights, views, and attitudes of our community toward important societal, political, and economic issues.

Challenge

Currently, there is very limited data on the Korean American community. In order to have a voice in national societal, political, & economic issues, our country's leaders must understand the perspectives of Korean Americans. While U.S. Census data identifies where Korean Americans live and work, it does not address how our community relates to important societal issues. As a result, decisions made at the highest levels of society fail to account for the perspective of Korean Americans.

Solution

These national survey results will provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive research on the political, economic, and social characteristics of the 1.8 million Korean Americans in the U.S. In addition, it will capture the evolving attitudes among Korean Americans toward other racial and ethnic groups and toward issues related to U.S.-Korea relations. Data will be collected in both Korean & English languages, thus increasing the opportunity for everyone within our community to participate.

Long-Term Impact

This data will prove invaluable to researchers in understanding the economic wealth, voting patterns & political preferences, collaboration with other minority groups, views on the U.S.-Korea alliance, & regional political opinion differences among Korean American communities. These discoveries will help influence a more inclusive policy-making for future generations of Korean Americans and serve to unify a community that in many ways is isolated and underrepresented but yet to be recognized.
