I revisited an interesting website, Asian-Nation.org, which offers some important insights into demographic and religious trends for the Asian-American community here in the U.S. It highlights some great surveys from American Religious Identifcation Survey and Pew Research. Since 14.9 million (5 percent of the total U.S. pop.) people are Asian (or Asian in combination with one or more other races) and 1 million are Pacific Islanders, they have a significant presence within the Diocese of Trenton (over 100,000+)-- and thus, there is a great opportunities for evangelization, collaboration and cooperation to and with these communities.
I've also included the Profile of New Jersey's Asian Americans (2005-2007) from the Asian American Federation, which includes demographic data broken down by county.
