American Human Development Project Releases 'A Century Apart,' Revealing Alarming Disparities in Well-Being Among U.S. Racial and Ethnic Groups
Date:4/28/2010

Asian Americans in New Jersey are Fifty Years Ahead of National Average, Native Americans in South Dakota are Fifty Years Behind

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2010 -- The American Human Development Project (AHDP), a nonpartisan, nonprofit initiative that seeks to augment GDP as a national measure of economic well-being, today released the latest update to its pioneering American Human Development (HD) Index. The American HD Index uses official government data to create a composite rating of overall well-being based on health, education, and income levels within states and across the country. The update, “A Century Apart,” measures the well-being of African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, and whites in the nation as a whole as well as in each state. At the national level, Asian Americans score the highest, followed by whites, Latinos, African Americans, and Native Americans and Alaska Natives.

“There is increasing consensus, on the left and right, that we as a country need a more comprehensive measure than GDP for fact-based policy debates about progress in the U.S. While GDP asks how the economy is doing, the American HD Index asks how people are doing,” said Kristen Lewis, co-director of AHDP.

According to “A Century Apart,” Asian Americans in New Jersey, with the highest Index scores, experience levels of well-being that, if current trends continue, the country as a whole will reach in about fifty years. At the other end of the spectrum, Native Americans in South Dakota lag more than a half-century behind the rest of the nation in terms of health, education, and income. Asian Americans in New Jersey live, on average, an astonishing 26 years longer, are 11 times more likely to have a graduate degree, and earn $35,610 more per year than South Dakota Native Americans.
