The purpose of this thesis was to examine health care access and utilization, discrimination, and demographic characteristics between East and Southeast Asian Americans. Using data from the 2016 California Health Interview Survey, a study was conducted by exploring survey questions and information relating to health care access and discrimination among Southeast Asians and East Asians.
Findings from the study resulted in significant associations between demographic characteristics (gender, age, education level, annual income, and marital status) and health care use questions (seeking doctor visit within two days, doctor visit in past 12 months, usual source of care, and preventative care visit) among Asian Americans.
