I think a lot of Indian immigrants are IT workers, so probably there is no prominent regional difference.

It is amazing that Indian nationals use about 80% H1b visa quota in IT industry. Some places are dominated by Indians already.

IT workers are disproportionately from the South though and they are definitely a minority within the larger Indian/South Asian population. Being in the medical field is far more common.

South Indians are somewhat common here, but leagues behind Gujjus and Punjabis, that's for sure. Like someone else said, alotta work visa folks are from South India. And cities with significant tech industries (Bay Area) will have alotta South Indians considering India's IT hubs are in the South. People come from other parts of India, but just no where as much. Maharashtra is another place that's popular, but, again. No where as much as Gujjus/Punjabis.
Why mostly from those states? Of course in SEA it's mostly Tamil but also others. Most Chinese whether to the West or SEA seem to come from Guangdong and Fujian.

It depends on the place of immigration. People from different regions of India went to different places, as some have pointed out.

I'm surprised, no one has mentioned has mentioned the USA motel business. HALF of all independent motels in the USA are now owned or managed by Indians, very often from the PATEL clan of western India. Ever see this film ? Mississippi Masala - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I could be wrong about this but it seems like here in Canada Punjabis are the biggest Indian group.
