2010-2017 Vietnamese Population Census Tract Analysis

Jasmine Tran & Quyen Vuong

Due to the obstacles of counting Vietnamese communities for the Census, ICAN took the initiative to provide a new visual representation of where our Vietnamese populations are highly concentrated. ICAN collected data, performed analysis, and compared this new data to data from the 2010 Census.

Vietnamese American caretakers face great stress in their day-to-day jobs. Although many organizations have programs for mental health care. we hope to incorporate a culturally sensitive perspective. By taking culture into perspective, we can greatly reduce stress in Vietnamese American caretakers.
