Matt Sheehan's Newsletter
Welcome to the 41st edition of The Chinafornia Newsletter, your weekly digest of news connecting the Golden State and the Middle Kingdom.
We’ve got a fun and diverse mix of stories out there this week – I’d especially recommend digging into the Education and China/town sections, both of which are particularly rich. Earlier this month, Pew put out a new round of demographic data on Asian America, with fact sheets by country. There’s lots in there to parse regarding recent waves of Chinese immigration, so check out the link below.
This week’s top stories:
1. Chinese in the US Fact Sheet - Pew Research Center
The Chinafornia Newsletter is created by me, Matt Sheehan. I’m a fellow at The Paulson Institute and write for the think tank’s site MacroPolo. I spent over five years in mainland China, including two as the first-ever China correspondent for The Huffington Post and The WorldPost. I’m now back in my native California where I’m consulting on market entry and communications for China-related projects, and writing a book on Chinafornia.
You can read some of my best work on my own website: An Optimist’s Guide to China. Follow me on Twitter @mattsheehan88 and feel free to email me at
