The General Delegation of the PLO is pleased to present the first of its kind comprehensive study Palestinian American National Research Project on the demography of Palestinian Americans living in the United States.
Due to an absence of clear classification of Arabs living in the US on official census forms, the General Delegation of the PLO to the US has decided to undertake the task of analyzing the demography of Palestinian Americans.
This is particularly significant because the information provided by the US Census Bureau fails to reflect the accurate number of Palestinians and their composition, as well as a lack other sources providing demographic data on this important subject matter.
In 2013, this project was assigned to experts to provide more information about the numbers and demography of Palestinian Americans living in the United States. However, we encountered two main problems, including arriving at an accurate number of Palestinian Americans living in the United States and meeting the deadline of the study to be completed in 2014. Nevertheless, this study is a significant and one of a kind research focusing on the Palestinian American population in the United States.
Despite the fact that it is a qualitative and not a quantitative study in nature, the study provides useful information for all interested parties in learning more about Palestinian Americans in the US. This project is available to all and is downloadable at This Link.
The General Delegation of the PLO encourages members of the Palestinian American community and all interested parties to use this first of its kind study, to further their understanding of the Palestinian American community and to disseminate this information and share it with others.
We are receptive to any comments or observation at our email: email@example.com . please limit such comments for research purposes or useful information which would enhance this study in the future.
