Adeel Hassan and Audrey Carlsen, Some Are 'Crazy Rich,' But Asians' Inequality Is Widest in the US. New York Times, Aug 19, 2018.

Quote:

"three-fourths of Taiwanese and Indians in America have a bachelor’s degree or higher, said Jennifer Lee, a professor of sociology at Columbia University. Southeast Asian groups from countries like Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, however, lag well behind the average for other Asian-Americans [who mostly came as refugees, followed by family reunion].

"In 1970, Asian immigrants came mostly from East Asia, but South Asian immigrants are fueling the growth that makes Asian-Americans the fastest-expanding group in the country, said Dr. Lee, the Columbia University sociologist.  Asian-Americans, who accounted for less than 1 percent of the population in 1970, are up to 6 percent today. South Asians and Southeast Asians together now outnumber East Asians. Family-sponsored migration remains the largest source of Asian immigration.

Note:
(a) As of today (Aug 20), the report is not translated in cn.nytimes.com.
(b) There is no need to read the rest, which are familiar to us
(c) Do view graphics.
(i) In the second panel (heading: Education and income of Asian-Americans) of graphics, Indians have the highest percentage of college (or bachelor's) degrees and highest percentage of incomes, though texts says Taiwanese also share the same attributes of the same percentage of college degrees. (This panel does not include Taiwanese, whose number may be too small.)  
(ii) It is surprising to me that the numbers of Indians and Chinese in US are similar nowadays.
(iii) The same panel also shows Filipinos has a high incomes despite low percentage of college degrees; but the income in y axis is household income; It is known that Filipinos have a bigger family and more in the family work (compared to other Asian groups).
