Census and race and ethnicity journalists tell multiformat story of Asian growth in Texas


Terry Tang, Mike Schneider and Noreen Nasir used multiple formats to tell the story of Asian population growth in North Texas and how it’s bringing change to the state.

Spotting an Asian population growth trend in North Texas while covering the census beat, Schneider teamed up with Tang to get a fuller picture. The duo found a lot of the growth came from South Asians. Tang traveled to Texas, developing a story that put Texas’ growth into the context of overall Asian growth in the U.S. They also showed it’s not all Texas sunshine and smooth sailing for those trying to live their American dream. Some struggles, including racism and balancing being American and South Asian, can come with it.

Nasir contributed to the text story and put together the video for the piece.
