FWIW, the OP didn't ask for the city/metro with the most or highest percentage of Asians. As an Asian-American, imho, any of these cities have an acceptable amount of Asian population/culture. For most people, issues such as cost of living, climate, career prospects are as important if not more important that demographics.

For what Asians? Umm... NO. Unless we are going into that stupid Chicago has more people discussion again.

That he didn't but he felt the need to tell us that so one would think he wanted us to consider that. Your don't know if his criteria are the same as yours so you can't claim that.

If he is looking for the most Asian city of these then San Franciso is obviously miles ahead of all the rest. But if he is just looking for a city where Asians exists in a decent amount and offers Asian things then Seattle and Boston are better options than Chicago.

Less than 1 percentage point separates the two metopolitan areas while Chicago's population is much larger. So, YES.

This link might help you out. You need it:

Now that I think about it, Chicago has a much greater concentration of Asians in Cook and DuPage Counties than Boston has in its' entire MSA.

I don't really much care about any of this but I hate to see people talk out of their asses.

Yes, except Chicago is the one with the less percentage:

What does a bigger population have to do with it? That's like saying NYC feels more Chinese than San Francisco because it has a bigger population. Just totally ridiculous.

If anything that's the thing that makes things turn to Boston's side. Asians are less represented in Chicago's population than in Boston. There are more things Asian for an average Boston Asian.

So you expect all Asians the city to do everything in Cook and DuPage Counties? Maybe you should go check if there is something wrong with your brain so you won't have to talk out of your ass so much.

^ Cook County, IL is the second largest county in the US after Los Angeles County, CA. It's population is actually 700,000-800,000 more people than the entire Boston MSA.

Okay, I lose.

See if you understand now, CHICAGO HAS LESS PERCENTAGE OF ASIANS COMPARED TO THEIR POPULATION.

Kapish?



Can you read English? The only thing he proved me wrong on after your last post is that various number of people doesn't have common sense.
Just like someone else said you just said Chicago has less amount of asians. he just proved you wrong. JUST ADMIT IT.

I already said that there was less than a 1% difference. That's not statistically relevant, IMO. Why not quit while you're behind?

Cook and DuPage Counties are right next to each other and have over 6.1 million people combined in a fairly small land area. Cook County is over 6% Asian and DuPage County is over 10% Asian. There is probably more going on in these two counties than most metropolitan areas in the country.
