WHERE IS THE DIMSUM?

METHODOLOGY. Geocoded all dim sum restaurants on Yelp. Analyzed race in 2mile buffers around all locations

  • Clusters in San Gabriel Valley

“ASIAN”-NESS IN LA COUNTY

METHODOLOGY. To understand the geographical phenomenon of Asian clusters, I looked at how the Asian race, population born in Asian and % who speak Asian languages clustered in LA

HOW ASIAN IS IT?

METHODOLOGY. “Asian Tracts” were selected by rasterizing and classifying the features of “Asian Race”, “Born in Asia” and “Speaking Asian Language”. Asian Tracts were calculated by weighing each features as described in the previous slide.

There were clear clusters around Rosmead, Covina and Rancho Palos Verde. For the purposes of this study, I selected the cluster of tracts around Rosmead and Monterey Park for analysis.

Strong correlation between entrepreneurship and tracts near Rosemead

Should further study the dynamic between Rosemead and Monterey Park

conclusions
CONCLUSIONS
  • Asianburbs replicate some features of old networks
    • Places where Asians can speak their mother tongues
    • Conduct business through their own networks
    • Keep close ties to countries of origin
    • Places where they can feel at home
    • Not springboards to assimilation but communities

…and that mean a lot of dimsum places
