Interactive Data Map: Asian American Communities

About this Resource: 

Region IV is the largest HHS region, comprised of eight states and 26% of the U.S. population. These states have large rural populations, high poverty rates, and face racial and cultural disparities in care. In addition the Southeast states have experienced considerable growth in Asian American communities in recent decades. Cultural and linguistic factors are important considerations when planning mental health care and support services for clients and families in these communities. Visualizing influences such as country of origin, race/ethnicity, and access to linguistically and culturally competent care can be a challenge in a large, diverse region.

The Southeast MHTTC Data Visualization Project provides information on Region IV priorities in an easy to understand graphical format.
