In order to get a closer look at recent trends, we can compare these numbers to data from the 2006 Census.
In comparing the 2010 data to the 2006 numbers, there are a few notable trends we can observe: Now that we have a general picture of what the marriage rates are for all members of each of these six Asian American ethnic groups, on the next page we will take a more specific look at only those Asian Americans who grew up in the U. and are therefore most likely to have been socialized within the context of U. racial landscape and intergroup relations -- the U.
Notwithstanding that omission, the NISVS 2011 survey reports that in the last 12 months, 41.7% of the victims of severe physical violence were men.
Whether it's dating or marrying someone of a different race, interracial relationships are not a new phenomenon among Asian Americans. It was not until 1967, during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, that the U. Supreme Court ruled in the case that such laws were unconstitutional. As suc, one could argue that it's only been in recent years that interracial marriages have become common in American society.
When the first Filipino and Chinese workers came to the U. Of course, anti-miscegenation laws were part of a larger anti-Asian movement that eventually led to the Page Law of 1875 that effectively almost eliminated Chinese women from immigrating ot the U.
The NISVS omission of threats by knife or gun is not only curious, but it flies in the face of the Centers for Disease Control’s own recommendations on data for intimate partner violence (Salzman, T.
et al, 1999) The section of that document that covers the victim’s experience of intimate partner violence includes sections on sexual violence, physical violence, threats of physical or sexual violence and “psychological / emotional abuse.” (Salzman, T., 1999, §3.3) 3 But NISVS survey respondents were not asked about being threatened with a knife or gun.
These are certainly a lot of numbers to consider and as I mentioned above, each model presents a different proportion.
