Profiling and Pride: Arab American Attitudes and Behavior Since September 11

In May 2002, the Arab American Institute Foundation (AAIF) commissioned a survey of Arab American attitudes and behavior since September 11. The May survey is compared to a similar poll commissioned by AAIF in October 2001, in the immediate aftermath of the terror attacks. On some variables a three-way comparison is made, including findings of a survey of Arab American attitudes taken in 2000. The findings of the May 2002 survey reveal that Arab Americans have increased their concern about how the aftermath of September 11 has affected their community, but continue to maintain strong attachments to their ethnic identity and pride.
