Many individuals contributed to the design, data collection and methodology of the 2022-2023 survey of Asian American adults. The survey and the reports from it would not be possible without Senior Methodologist Ashley Amaya, who designed the survey’s methodology, managed the long fielding period with Westat, and helped with the questionnaire development. The entire survey project was expertly managed by Research Associate Luis Noe-Bustamante. Noe-Bustamante also managed a team that carried out the survey’s data processing and included temporary Research Associate Abby Budiman, Research Assistant Carolyne Im, Research Methodologist Arnold Lau and Research Assistant Lauren Mora.

Ruiz and former Research Associate Sunny Shao led the development of the survey questionnaire with help from Amaya, Research Associate Khadijah Edwards, Research Assistant Mohamad Moslimani, Mora and Noe-Bustamante. Senior Demographer Jeffrey Passel provided advice on the demographic analysis. Pew Research Center is also grateful to Westat’s Mike Brick, Ismael Flores Cervantes, Eric Jodts and Hanna Popick for their many contributions to this project.

Director of Race and Ethnicity Research Mark Hugo Lopez provided editorial guidance over the project, including the survey questionnaire, this report and related products. Jocelyn Kiley, associate director of research, also provided guidance on the report. The report was number-checked by Moslimani and Im. Senior Copy Editor David Kent copy edited the report. The report was produced by Digital Producer Shannon Greenwood.

The communications and outreach strategy for the report was led by Communications Manager Hannah Klein, with help from Communications Managers Tanya Arditi and Nida Asheer, and Communications Associates Mimi Cottingham, Julia O’Hanlon and Talia Price. The charts and illustrations were designed by Senior Information Graphics Designer Bill Webster.
