Those youngsters who attended church and participated in religious activities more were more likely to do well in school and to stay out of trouble. For hundreds of generations in the past, it has bonded communities and been the basis for many people's lives.
Of course, religion, spirituality, and faith is only one part of this adaptation and socialization process and it interacts with many other factors in affecting how an Asian immigrant adjusts to his/her new life in the U. Even with changes in culture, physical location, and social institutions, its effect lives on.
Again the data show that Christian faiths and denominations claim the highest percentage of followers among Asian Americans, with Eastern Religions and unaffiliated responses also claiming large numbers of respondents.
Interesting, once the unique faiths within the "Eastern Religions" category are expanded, we see that Hinduism is the mos popular eastern faith among Asian Americans (due largely to the large size of the Indian American population), with Buddhism second.
So to try to measure the size of religions within each ethnic group, we can look at the proportions for different religions within that Asian country.
Although it's not completely accurate, it's a generally safe assumption that the religious proportions within an Asian country are similar to that within its community in the U.
One of the first questions to examine is, which religions or faith traditions are the most popular among Asian Americans and among each of the different Asian ethnic groups?
Unfortunately, nationally representative and reliable statistics are difficult to find.
Other practical examples include information and assistance on issues relating to education, employment, housing, health care, business and financial advice, legal advice, marriage counseling, and dealing with their Americanized children, etc.Finally, as Bankston and Zhou point out in their study of the New Orleans Vietnamese community, religion can play a significant part in affecting a young Asian American's ethnic identity.The Catholic churches in the Vietnamese section of the city helped to keep young Vietnamese Americans integrated within the larger community.These Eastern Religions saw a dramatic increase from 1990 to 2001, then leveled off in 2008.Catholics are the third-largest group at 17% in 2008, with their proportions declining notably from 27% in 1990.
In contrast to the ARIS 2008 report, the USLRS methodology sometimes includes the same denomination with separate categories (i.e., Baptists can be both "Evangelical" and "Mainline") -- please check page 12 and Appendix 2 of the USLRS report for the exact categorizations and their detailed explanation of their methodology.
