Unfortunately, neither the ARIS nor the USLRS studies break the religious affiliation down to specific Asian ethnic groups.
For that matter, I have yet to find any research that does.
But they all share the commonality of helping Asian Americans adjust to life in the U. and all the issues that surround what it means to be an Asian American.
As several social scientists point out, these various forms of spirituality and faith help Asian Americans to deal with the upheavals of immigration, adapting to a new country, and other difficult personal and social transformations by providing a safe and comfortable environment in which immigrants can socialize, share information, and assist each other.
Unitarian (Universalist), 'Spiritual but not religious,' Eclectic, 'a bit of everything,' own beliefs, Other liberal faith groups, New Age, Wica (Wiccan), Pagan, Other New Age groups, Native American Religions The category of "Christian Generic" (comprising those who identified as Christian, Protestant, Evangelical/ Born Again Christian, Born Again, Fundamentalist, Independent Christian, Missionary Alliance Church, and Non-Denominational Christian) is the fourth-largest group at 10% in 2008.
Other Christian and Protestant denominations are listed below that.
In this process, religious traditions can help in the process of forming Asian immigrant communities by giving specific Asian ethnic groups another source of solidarity, in addition to their common ethnicity, on which to build relationships and cooperation.
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.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.The data shown here is for Asian American respondents only and is taken from page 40 of their report.God’s law in the Ten Commandments show us how to live and make clear our need for Jesus.Though the law shows us the path to follow and convicts us of sin, it’s about far more than just toeing the line.S., since the majority of Asian Americans are foreign-born (source: 2000 CIA World Factbook): Again, these stats are imperfect because as China and Viet Nam are both officially atheist countries, there are no statistics on the proportions of religions in each country.Ultimately, as there is so much diversity in the Asian American population in so many ways, so too this applies to our religions and practices of spirituality and faith.The 2008 study includes data from a large, nationally representative sample of 54,461 U. You can place your cursor over each religion or denomination to see a detailed listing of specific denominations included within each of these categories, or you can visit the ARIS 2008 Appendix as well.The results show that while no religion can claim a majority of followers in the Asian American community, as of 2008, those who claim no religious affiliation are the largest group.
