Nebraska Indochinese Refugee Needs Assessment [microform]

Format MicroformMicroform, BookBook

Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1981 
166 p. 

This is the report of a study in which the needs of Nebraska Indochinese refugees were assessed by in-person interviews in 115 households representing 30% of the Indochinese households in the State. These households included five ethnic groups (ethnic Vietnamese, Chinese Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians, and Hmong) and were representatives of the rural and urban areas throughout the state. Topics addressed in the needs assessment were employment, housing, finance, health, nutrition, education, the social environment, and demographic data. The most crucial problems facing refugees were found to be communication problems, employment, and job training, as well as issues related to homesickness and separation from family members. A need for information concerning the American legal system, American customs, and issues involving financial management were priority areas for continuing education. The data were analyzed using the Chi-square test of significance and the Pearson r-square test of variance. Ethnic group and length of time in the United States were the two independent variables found to be most frequently related to items on the questionnaire. Level of education was also frequently related. Occupation, urban/rural, income, and age played lesser roles. Length of residence and education were the best measures of variance. Appended to the report are various data collection forms used in the study (including copies of questionnaires in the various languages of the refugee), and quantitative data tables. (Author/APM)
