Washington
One in two Indian-Americans have been treated discriminatory in the past year. This has been revealed in a new study. The study was conducted jointly by the Connergy Endowment for International Peace, Johns Hopkins-SAIS, and the University of Pennsylvania. The survey was titled ‘Social Realities of Indian Americans: Results from the 2020 Indian American Attitudes Survey’.

This is the third such survey, released on Wednesday, based on the social, political and foreign policy perspectives of Indian-Americans. The study said that one in two Indian Americans reported being discriminated against in the past year. This discrimination was mostly done on the basis of skin colour. Surprisingly, Indian-Americans born in the US experienced this discrimination more than their counterparts from the country.

Spouses of eight out of ten respondents are of Indian origin
The study’s findings were based on a nationally representative online survey of 1,200 Indian-American residents in the US. It was conducted from September 1 to September 20, 2020, in partnership with research and analytics firm YouGov. The report also found that Indian-Americans mostly marry within their own community. According to the study, eight out of ten respondents said that their spouse is of Indian origin.

American-born Indian-Americans choose people who are Indian and born in America as their spouses. Religion also plays an important role in this. While 40 percent of the respondents pray at least once a day, 27 percent attend religious services at least once a week.
