In The Data Case for AAPI Anti-Displacement, National CAPACD finds that low-income AAPIs are at high risk of economic displacement from rising housing costs. This is because low-income AAPIs disproportionately live in expensive and “hot” neighborhoods.
Build your own data case about low-income AAPIs and rising housing costs in your neighborhood. The following tools are currently available to help you get started:

Housing Costs and Poverty by Race, US Census Tracts
Census Tracts are geographic areas that are defined by the US Census and used to track demographic and economic data at roughly a neighborhood level. Each county is split into census tracts with each census tract containing several thousand people.
To find out what census tract any address is in, go here and enter an address. Using the County NAME and Census Tract NAME, you can look up housing costs and poverty by race for your neighborhood in the following tables, by state:
Use these data to show that housing costs are rising in your neighborhood and putting low-income AAPIs at risk of displacement.
