Inspired by the Sinai's Improving Community Health Survey (Sinai Survey), the Asian Health Coalition of Illinois (AHCI) and its community partners began implementing a similar local assessment of health in three Asian populations in Chicago. They conducted health surveys in the Chinese, Cambodian, and Vietnamese communities; together these are called the Chicago Asian Community Health Surveys (Asian Surveys). This chapter discusses the background, methods, and key findings to highlight the processes, achievements, and impact of the Asian Survey project.

Keywords:   Chicago, community health, Asian Surveys, Asian populations, Chinese community, Cambodian community, Vietnamese community
