    This document compiles the results of the survey that was sent to Japanese Americans who had been affected by the internment during World War II. It breaks down the respondents by ages, gender orientation, citizenship information, and generational labels. It demonstrates the number of people affected and how they were effected. Some moved away from military zones, others joined the armed services, and many others, still, lived in the camps for up to four years. The survey also demonstrates the problems faced in terms of economic loss, abuse, racism, poor health, and emotional or psychological loss, just to name a few. Only 2.8% of respondents reported that their time in the camps "strengthened their character". The survey results also demonstrate a breakdown of how Japanese Americans would have preferred to receive redress or reparations with over 65% wanting an official congressional admission of wrong doing. less
