Referring to Populations

It is important to refer to this community as "Chinese in Metropolitan Denver, CO, USA" when describing these samples in articles or presentations. Including the full name reinforces the point that the sample set does not represent all people who emigrated from China or all people in China. The population should not be described as "Chinese American" out of respect for the expressed wishes of the donor community. The population also should not be described merely as "Asian" or "East Asian" as these terms encompass many communities.

The full population descriptor is Chinese in Metropolitan Denver, CO, USA  and the abbreviation is CHD.

Additional guidance about how to refer to the populations can be found at Guidelines for Referring to the Populations in Publications and Presentations.
