“The Rise of Asian Americans” reports that Asian Americans are now the fastest growing racial group in the U.S., as well as the best-educated and most prosperous. Just released by the Pew Research Center, the report is based on an opinion survey of 3,500 Asian Americans and U.S. Census data.
"Asians recently passed Hispanics as the largest group of new immigrants to the United States. The educational credentials of these recent arrivals are striking. More than six-in-ten (61%) adults ages 25 to 64 who have come from Asia in recent years have at least a bachelor’s degree. This is double the share among recent non-Asian arrivals, and almost surely makes the recent Asian arrivals the most highly educated cohort of immigrants in U.S. history."
