Foreign-Born Asians Most Likely to Marry


On October 16, 2012, the Census Bureau announced that foreign-born Asian Americans are the most likely to marry than any other foreign-born or native-born, self-identified group in the United States.  Foreign-born Asian Americans are the most likely to live in multigenerational households as well.  

The findings were released in the 2011 American Community Survey that was just recently released by the Census Bureau.  

According to the Survey, about 65.8 percent of foreign-born Asian Americans are married.  About 58.3 percent of all other foreign-born Americans are married, and 46.5 percent native-born Americans are married.  Additionally, about 9.4 percent of foreign-born Asian Americans live in a multigenerational home (with three or more generations), while only 4.9 percent of native-born Americans live in a multigenerational household.  U.S. citizens born in the Philippines or Vietnam have the most multigenerational households.  

According to the Census Bureau, about 13 percent of all 311.6 million Americans were born outside of the United States.  Foreign-born Asian Americans accounted for one-fourth of U.S. citizens born out of the country.  About 11.6 million Asian Americans were born outside of the United States.  

The following statistics were also released by the 2011 American Community Survey:

•    about 2.2 million foreign-born citizens are from China; about 1.9 million are from India; about 1.8 million are from the Philippines; about 1.3 million are from Vietnam; and about 1.1 million are from Korea
•    about 83 percent the Asian-born population who are 25 years of age or older have a high school diploma, and about 48 percent have a bachelor’s degree or higher
•    foreign-born Asians are the most likely to become naturalized citizens (about 58 percent)
•    the states with more than half of the foreign-born population from Asia include California (about 3.7 million), New York (about 1.2 million), Texas (about 778,000), and New Jersey (about 593,000)
