This is a .html file index to my research files and writing, it just may have the most comprehensive list of statistics and rankings in the world, and I've got rankings by religion, gender, and orientation with all 4 or 5 major racial categories also in some spots.
Some entries give file locations on my local hard drive which you can't look at, but I try to put a good summary into the web index. For best results, go to asianam.htm since this is an Asian-centric database with every statistic every dug up on Asians and Asian Americans. You get the other races for no extra charge.
Files whose location is under priv are often copyrighted or private. You can read them under "fair use" as in a library, but not distribute them without permission. I don't yet have enough web space to put everything on line. Until I do, I can email you a small number of files you would like to look at as attachments, or as ascii files if I have them.
