We are pleased to share that the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and the University of California, Riverside’s AAPIData.com have partnered to launch Elevate: AAPI Data Challenge! We want to hear from the community on novel approaches to interpret data on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs), particularly data that is broken out by detailed origin (e.g., Chinese, Cambodian, Filipino, etc.).
Background: AAPIs make up the fastest growing racial group and are projected to surpass 50 million by 2060. AAPIs are one of the most diverse racial groups, representing dozens of ethnicities, cultures and migration stories from around the world. Over the last 10 years, there have been significant improvements in the availability of data on AAPIs and while these datasets include information on the detailed origin of AAPIs, they are still underutilized, which is why we’re launching Elevate: AAPI Data Challenge.
Key Date: Submissions will be accepted until Monday, September 5 (Labor Day). They can take on various forms, including infographics, apps, data tables, blog posts, and even animations, videos, and other creative mediums. Challenge details can be found here.
Please help us get the word out! You can also read more about our announcement here on the Angry Asian Man Blog as well as in this article by NBC News.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing your submissions!
Thanks to Everett Lo for sharing this information with AABANY.
