There are clear dif­fer­ences in the extent of bar­ri­ers to suc­cess among sub­groups of Asian and Lati­no chil­dren. Although Asian-Amer­i­can chil­dren scored the high­est on well-being indi­ca­tors, kids of South­east Asian descent have poor­er out­comes than their peers. For exam­ple, Hmong, Laot­ian and Cam­bo­di­an chil­dren are the least like­ly to live in fam­i­lies with incomes at or greater than 200 per­cent of the pover­ty line. For Lati­nos, kids of Mex­i­can and Cen­tral Amer­i­can descent face the biggest bar­ri­ers. Chil­dren from Hon­duras, the Domini­can Repub­lic and Guatemala are the least like­ly to live in fam­i­lies with incomes at or above 200 per­cent of the pover­ty line. Lati­no chil­dren in immi­grant fam­i­lies also have some of the steep­est obsta­cles to over­come of any group.
