Visualizing Reach of Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health for Asian Americans: the REACH FAR Project in New York and New Jersey
GIS SNAPSHOT — Volume 15 — September 13, 2018
Population concentrations of 4 Asian American populations (Asian Indian, Bangladeshi, Filipino, Korean) in the New York City Metropolitan Area in the following counties: New Jersey: Morris, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Hudson, Union, Middlesex; New York: Richmond, Kings, Queens, New York, Nassau, Bronx, Westchester, Rockland. The map shows the relationship between a participant’s residence and the location at which she or he participated in the Keep on Track blood pressure monitoring program. The map shows large concentrations of Korean populations in Bergen County, New Jersey, and Queens County, New York, and large concentrations of Asian Indian populations in Middlesex County, New Jersey, and Queens and Nassau counties, New York. Small concentrations of Filipino and Bangladeshi populations are scattered across New Jersey and New York counties. The data sources for the map were REACH FAR implementation sites as of 2016; Keep on Track baseline surveys; US Census Decennial Census 2010 Summary File 1, Table B01003 (Total Population) and Table B02015 (Asian Alone by Selected Groups). Clusters were generated with proportion of variables: numerator, B02015002, Asian Indian; B02015003, Bangladeshi; B02015008, Filipino; B02015012, Korean; denominator, B01003001, total population. Map was created with ArcGIS, version 10.4.1; Getis Ord Gi* tool (Esri) was used to identify population concentrations.
