With a degree from these types of colleges a graduate usually will make their way into upper echelon of the United States workforce. However, Asian Americans only hold less than two percent of top corporate jobs. The average income of an Asian American in the year of 2009 was approximately $68,780, which is the highest among all race groups. However, the poverty rate of Asians in 2009 was up to 12.5 percent from 10.6 percent in 2007. Researchers, supported by Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Pfizer and Time Warner, conducted 2,952 surveys of working-aged men and women and gathered qualitative and quantitative data to conclude that many Asian-Americans, whether immigrant or native born, find it hard to "fit in" the upper management ranks.
Females make up 50.7 % of the population in 2013. 48.3 % of the population is Latinos and Hispanics, 35.1 % of the population is born outside of the United States, and 56.8 % of the population over 5 years old speaks a language other than English at home. B.1. Population Economic Status Assessment Los Angeles County is a large community with unemployment rate of 9.9%, which is higher that the California rate of 8.9% (County Health Ranking 2015). With 48.3% of the population being Hispanic and Latinos, 35.1 % of the population being born outside of the United States, and 56.8% of the population over 5 year old speaking a language other than English at home, this plays an important factor in education in terms of academic education and also in the education of preventative healthcare practices.
“In 1900, nine out of 10 minorities were African American. In 1998, Blacks made up less than one-half of all minorities, and their share is declining. Hispanics, with a 1998 population of 30 million, are the second largest minority, accounting for 40 percent of U.S. minorities,” according to the Population Reference Bureau, (PRB, September 1999). “The U.S. Census Bureau projects that Hispanics will outnumber non-Hispanic Blacks by 2005,” (PRB, September 1999). “Asians accounted for 13 percent of minorities in 1998, while American Indians, Eskimos, and Aleuts made up 3
Both ethnic groups have a significantly higher percentage of college graduates than the White American race does, which boasts a 29.70 percent completion rate (Schaefer, 2012). The high educational level that both the Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans achieve is primarily why both groups have been referred to as model minority groups (Ma, Okubo, Ou, Pituc, Shea & Yeh, 2008). Both Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans do extremely well within the professional workforce as well. Ma, Okubo, Ou, Pituc, Shea and Yeh (2008) reference that half of all Chinese Americans serve in a management or professional role; therefore, citing their strong ability to be entrepreneurs and high skill levels. The same holds true for the Japanese American race.
In 2010, the total U.S. Hispanic population was 16 percent of the total U.S. population. By the year 2050 that number is expected to rise to 30.2 percent of the total U.S. population (U.S. Census Bureau, 2008). Even though the U.S. population continues to grow in diversity; nurses remained a homogenous group. According to Maier-Lorentz (2008), “Approximately 90% of all Registered Nurses are Caucasian. Although Hispanics have become the majority minority in the U.S., it is estimated that there are only 2 % Hispanic Registered Nurses in the nursing profession (Minority Nursing Statistics, 2005)” (p.37).
These statistics show that ethnic minorities have made up the majority of additional voters, presenting the importance of ethnic minorities in the US political system. In 2000 Whites had the highest registration rates with 72% of Whites registered to vote. Although Black registration rates did increase by 4 percentage points, Black registration was still lower than Whites at 68%. Hispanic registration rates were lower still at 57% and remained unchanged from the 1996 Presidential Election. API registration rates went down from 1996 to 2000 by 5%
As relatively few go on to achieve a university degree, they have a lack of qualifications, which leads to much fewer job opportunities. The Asian population has achieved the most among ethnic

 Which category of support and revenue is not growing as fast as perhaps it should? • Outside support has only grown by 17.72% (100%-82.28%) in the past four years, much less than tuition has grown.

Edward Lazear also says that immigrants are more likely to be entrepreneurs than native-born U.S. citizens. One of every four engineering and technology companies started in the United States between 1995 and 2005 had immigrant founders. Over one third of Nobel Prizes in the U.S. were awarded to foreign-born scientists between 1990 and
