STAATUS Index 2023: Attitudes towards Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

May 02, 2023
  • Description

The annual  Social Tracking of Asian Americans in the U.S. (STAATUS) Index is the leading study on perceptions and attitudes towards the AAPI community.

In our third year, we are starting to see how Americans' views of Asian Americans are changing.

Findings from STAATUS over the last three years show that we cannot attribute the anti-Asian sentiment in our country to political rhetoric and the COVID-19 pandemic alone. Racism against AAPIs is deeply embedded in American history, culture, and institutions and continues to be on the rise.
