    This article examines the risks of poverty among elderly Asians living in the United States. Using data from the 2000 US Census, the analysis examines differences in poverty status by marital status, household structure and nativity. The article, addressing the "model minority" thesis among Asian Americans, shows how it fails to control for heterogeneity within this population. The analysis finds that Asian elders benefit from co-residence, and while we cannot test for the presence of filial piety among the Asian population this finding is consistent with other studies that show extended family living represents a response to poverty rather than preference. Marked differences are seen among Asian elders in poverty when controlled by specific ethnicity among US nationals or by national origin among migrants to the United States further supporting the high level of heterogeneity within Asian populations.
