As demonstrated through research findings, families play an essential role for early detection, diagnosis, and evidence-based interventions. In a diverse society such as the United States, it is extremely important to provide cultural competent services to children and their families from diverse cultural backgrounds. The purpose of this study is to investigate the demographic characteristics of young children from birth to ten years of age in Chinese immigrant families in the greater Rochester area. The demographic characteristics are: the children’s gender, birth place, birth date, years in U.S., siblings, ordinal position, home languages, and primary language; the parents’ age, birth place, years in U.S., education and income level; and other family members. It aims to provide more detailed demographic information for schools and educators so that they will know better about students in Chinese immigrant families in the greater Rochester area.
