More than 80% of Asian adults say that violence against them is increasing, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

The big picture: The survey, conducted April 5-11, comes after the recent shootings in Atlanta in which eight people, including six Asian women were killed, as well as a yearlong spike in hate incidents against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

By the numbers: 32% of Asian adults say they fear someone might threaten or physically attack them, "a greater share than other racial or ethnic groups," Pew writes.

  • 45% of Asian adults say they have experienced at least one of five specific offensive incidents since the start of the pandemic.
  • One in 5 survey respondents cited former President Trump's rhetoric around China and the pandemic and his labeling the virus "kung flu" or "Chinavirus" as one of the reasons why violence against the AAPI community has increased.

Go deeper:

Methodology, per Pew: Data used is drawn from the panel wave conducted April 5 to April 11, 2021 and included oversamples of Asian, Black and Hispanic Americans. A total of 5,109 panelists responded out of 5,970 who were sampled, for a response rate of 86%. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 5,109 respondents is ± 2.1 percentage points.

Biden administration officials: Vaccine equity takes effort

Distributing the coronavirus vaccine to community health centers has been "critical" to the Biden administration's goal of vaccinating Americans while maintaining racial equity, Cameron Webb, White House senior policy advisor for COVID-19 equity said at an Axios event on Tuesday

What they're saying: Webb said the administration was committed to getting everyone vaccinated but "there's also that long issue of making sure that racial justice is a priority, making sure that we're serving rural communities and a very real and meaningful way."

Americans largely approve of the verdict in Tuesday's murder trial of Derek Chauvin, with 71% agreeing the ex-police officer was guilty, according to a USA Today/Ipsos snap poll published Wednesday.

Why it matters: "With most Americans saying they have followed the trial at least somewhat, the verdict presents a rare moment when majorities of both Democrats and Republicans believe the outcome is correct," Ipsos said in a release.
