A file of local interest, Suburban Immigrant Koreans in Bergen County, New Jersey, 2004.

“The study examines this spatial dispersion without diminishing ethnic ties, that is, without ethnic attenuation.”

“Methodologically, the study consisted of two tasks. The first task investigated how and why Bergen County’s Korean households are spatially dispersed based on 1980, 1990, and 2000 aggregate Census data and 1990 and 2000 Public-Use Microdata Sample Data. The second task examined why and to what extent Korean households in the suburbs are linked to ethnic centers. This information was collected from a telephone survey of Korean households in Bergen County in 2004.”
