In this edition of Brookings Data Now: Filipinos in America; decline in global aid to education; EITC filers across the nation; private-sector payrolls keep increasing.
Filipinos comprise the second-largest group of Asian-Americans and the largest foreign-born ethnic group in the U.S. military.
Foreign aid grew by 6 percent, but spending 20 percent of total public spending on education is recommended.

The map of EITC benefits mirrors a map of single motherhood.
As of March 2014, private payrolls have hit more than 116 million, erasing the losses of the great recession (but not closing the jobs gap).
