Asian and Pacific Islander populations grow in Georgia, experiencing 81% state-wide growth and making 5.7% of entire metro-Atlanta population | AALAC

Last week the Census Bureau released 2010 demographic data for Georgia which revealed a huge growth of the Asian and Pacific Islander American (API) populations over the past 10 years, from 2.1% in 2000 to 3.3% in 2010. From 2000 to 2010, the state-wide API population grew 81 percent in comparison to the overall population growth of 18 percent. Almost three-quarters (73%) of APIs live in the 10 counties that make up Metro-Atlanta as defined by the Atlanta Regional Commission.
“The exponential increase of Asian and Pacific Islanders Americans in Georgia is no surprise to those that live here and experience the benefits and values of a more diverse state,” said Cam T. Ashling, President of AALAC.

The Asian and Pacific Islander American population grew 77 percent in metro-Atlanta alone. The county with the highest concentration of Asian Americans is Gwinnett County, with 10.7 percent (including Pacific Islanders), followed by Fulton (5.6%), DeKalb (5.2%), Clayton (5%) and Cobb (4.5%). In the ten-county metro Atlanta area, Asian Americans represent 5.7% of the metro population, up from 3.8% in 2000.
Of the 42 states in which the Census has released data, Georgia is the fifth fastest growing state for Asian Americans, behind only Arizona, North Dakota, North Carolina and Nevada. “With Georgia and North Carolina experiencing such significant jumps in their API populations, it’s clear that the Southeast is a critical growth region for Asian Americans,” said Helen Ho, Executive Director of AALAC. “The face of Georgia has changed, and we hope the interests of our growing immigrant populations are taken into account when developing local policies – if not, policy makers will marginalize communities that are clearly growing to become major voting blocks in our city and state,” said Ho.

Great news for metro Atlanta. We're becoming genuinely diverse, instead of just code-word "diverse" as in times past. I love the people, culture, food, art and other richness that Asians and Pacific Islanders are bringing here.

In other news, apparently Korean Airlines has enhanced service to Atlanta. Now they have 10 flights a week in 747-400s, instead of split between 747 and 777s. That's almost 3,500 seats each way!

We are in the running for the new Airbus A380 flights, eventually. The airport is widening runways and aisles to support this.

Wow 5.7% of the entire Atlanta metro area... that's like 300,000... that's pretty big numbers... it's gonna give Houston and Dallas a run for their money in terms of Asian populations in the South.

You guys think this will eventually drive up real estate prices in duluth, suwanee, or johns creek? Home prices seems so cheap to me right now for the value you get. I wonder If the high influx of Asians would drive up the real estate prices in those areas?
