The Attainment of
Asians’ Education In
Queens County, NY
Background
Based on the Asian immigration history, early Asian immigrants (pre 1830s), they
left their countries of origin to the United States (mainly California) for many
reasons.
● Natural disasters
● Wars
● Forced Labor
● etc.
Definitely it was impossible for pre Asian immigrants to attain the decent education
like American citizens at that period.
Background
After the period of early immigration, the immigration waves are defined as First Major
Wave and New wave. Asian Immigrants started to alter their center from the West coast to
the East coast, especially in Queens, NY.
From New Waves of Immigration, the
rights and community power of Asian
immigrants got attention, many aspects
of their life were strengthened
including the quality of education.
Background
About half of Asians ages 25 and older (51%) have a bachelor’s degree or
more, compared with 30% of all Americans this age.
These shares vary widely by Asian origin group. Indians have the highest level of educational
attainment among Asian Americans, with 72% holding a bachelor’s degree or more in 2015. A
majority of Sri Lankan (57%), Mongolians (59%) and Malaysian (60%) adults 25 and older have
a bachelor’s degree or more. But lower shares of adults have a bachelor’s degree or more for
Cambodians(18%), Hmong (17%), Laotians (16%) and Bhutanese (9%).

Final Paper Requirements (Note this document refers ONLY to the structure of the paper. Please refer
to the syllabus for other requirements. All papers need to be uploaded electronically to the course
website through the SafeAssign Folder called “Final Paper” under “Assignments” Layer on Blackboard)
1. Introduction: In this section, you need to introduce your study, by describing the background of your
study, the reason you choose this topic, as well as the significance of you study. Specifically, you need to
answer the following question: – What does this paper study? (It would be better if you have specific
research question(s). For example, why does the number of Chinese students in ASU change in the past
two decades?) – Why do you choose this topic? Why it is worth a research? – What is the significance of
you study?
2. Literature review: In this section, you need to briefly review what other scholars have already
addressed this topic. You may need to review existing literature by topics/ subtopic. Don’t just say that
XXX(2006) looks at (the subject). Instead, you should say XXX(2006) states (about the subject).You may
use any citation style of your choice, so long as you are consistent in your paper. At the end of this
section, you need to state what the theoretical gaps among previous literatures and how you study
would fill in the gap. For example, you can say, “previous studies have examined the numbers of Asian
students in Arizona, and some have analyzed the numbers of Chinese students in the U.S. However,
there are no literatures specifically look at the Chinese students in Arizona in the past two decades, and
that is how our study would fill the theoretical gap.”
3. Research Design: In this section, you need to state the methods you utilize, the dataset you use or
how you collect your own data, as well as data processing (if any). Specifically, you need to answer the
following questions: – Where is you study area? How does that relate to your research topic/question? What research method you use? Primary data or secondary data? – How do you process the data after
you collected them?

4. Findings: In this section, you need to tell readers what you findings are based on the data you
collected/analyzed. If you have a research question, you may need to answer the research question
accordingly. This is the section you need to specifically state your points in the paper, and it should be a
major section of the paper.
5. Concluding remarks: In this section, you need to summarize your analysis and your arguments. If you
have a research question, you may need to remind the audience of your search question. You also need
to discuss the shortcomings of your research, what could have been done to make the result better,
what issues are important but your study is unable to address; i.e. this is for future research directions,
or had you have more resources or time, what you could/should have been doing. At the end you may
need to restate how the findings are different from previous literatures, how this study is significant
from others, and how this paper would contribute to the academic field and beyond.
Please remember to include page number on each page of your paper.
