We focus on the household’s racial-ethnic homogeneity and diversity as a bridge between society-level forces and person-level experiences. We use 2010 U.S. Census data and focus on groups who fall under the general label “Asian American” to explore the relationships between household context and histories (e.g. immigration, intermarriage, settlement patterns). We provide fine-grain descriptive information into the contextual experience for Asian American subgroups. Specific Asian group histories work together with household composition to influence individuals’ ethnic-racial identification. Our results provide important contextual information using household diversity, homogeneity, and size to better understand an important location where ethnic-racial development occurs.
