A bar chart showing Asian Americans' awareness and views of the "model minority" label by their knowledge of U.S. Asian history. About 62% of Asian adults who are extremely or very informed of U.S. Asian history say they have heard of the term "model minority," compared with smaller shares among those who are less informed. However, among those who have heard of the term, similar shares of Asian adults across knowledge levels say describing Asians in the U.S. as a "model minority" is a bad thing.
