The study is a cross-sectional investigation of volunteer activity among four distinct Asian ethnic subgroups — Chinese, Filipino, Korean, and Vietnamese — who have immigrated to the United States. Data from the 2011–2012 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) were used with an analytic sample of Chinese (n = 547), Filipino (n = 229), Korean (n = 490), and Vietnamese (n = 546) adults 50 and older. A series of logistic regression models were estimated to examine differences and similarities across the four ethnic groups in volunteer activity.

Consistent with previous studies, Asian immigrants with more years of education and those who became U.S. citizens were more likely to participate in volunteering. However, the correlates were not consistent within Asian ethnic subgroups. For example, education was not a significant factor for older Korean immigrants while it was a salient factor among other Asian subgroups. Results showed similarities and differences associated with volunteer participation among diverse ethnic subgroups. The findings underscored the importance of culture-specific information in creating inclusive opportunities for volunteering.
