American-born Chinese or "ABC" describes a person born in the United States of Chinese ethnic descent, a category of Chinese American. Many are second-generation (meaning that they have at least one parent born outside the United States) and were born after the U.S. Immigration Act of 1965, which liberalized preexisting limits on immigration from East Asia.

Note that in Australia, this acronym may also be used to refer to Australian-born Chinese.
