Summary:

Asians generally have the lowest unemployment rates, or not much
worse, with the exception of Southeast Asian refugees and Samoans.
As of 1990, Asians as a whole are about the same, where they were
relatively better compared to whites in 1980. The 3 largest groups,
Chinese, Japanese, and Filipinos have lower rates than whites, and
the Japanese Americans are only half the rate of whites.
