This is a good analysis, but what if you don't believe in Asians?

I see that you are going off of raw numbers. 5.6% is the national average so if we do it by percentages, the tiers breakout a little differently.

Above Average
Los Angeles - Asian Population: 2,455,544 - 13.1% of population
San Francisco Bay Area - Asian Population: 2,076,830 - 23.8% of population
New York City/Tri-State Area - Asian Population: 2,375,437 - 10.0% of population
Washington DC - Asian Population: 782,327 - 8.1% of population
Sacramento - Asian Population: 318,972 - 12.5% of Population
Houston - Asian Population: 501,881 - 7.3% of Population
San Diego - Asian Population: 387,242 - 11.7% of Population
Sacramento - Asian Population: 318,972 - 12.5% of Population
Las Vegas - Asian Population: 208,236 - 8.8% of Population

Average
Chicago - Asian Population: 614,051 - 6.2% of population
Boston - Asian Population: 474,727 - 5.8% of Population
Dallas - Asian Population: 454,548 - 6.2% of Population
Philadelphia - Asian Population: 390,818 - 5.4% of Population
Atlanta - Asian Population: 330,871 - 5.2% of Population
Minneapolis - Asian Population: 232,620 - 6.0% of Population

So other "Asian" does not count for Arabs etc? I'm asking with regards to what was said about Detroit which would rank higher if so.

Also if these are done by CSA then Washington DC's percentage should be much higher by MSA.

Arabs are generally counted as White within the US census. I think a lot of Detroit's "Other Asian" is Hmong, same with Minneapolis.

Arabs don't fall under census numbers for Asians from what I know.

It would be interesting to know where the cut off point is and which countries are being consider as either Asian or Arab. Like does it stop at Iran/Pakistan etc.

Correct. "Arabs" can be Asian but can also be African.

The US Census define white as anyone with predominant ancestry from Europe, Southwest Asia(mostly middle east), and even North Africa. Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladesh, and Sri Lankans are considered Asians, although most of them have a phenotype closer to that of Middle Easterners.

I believe the census counts Pakistani as Asian, but not Iranians. Also interesting is that none of the former Soviet 'stans in Central Asia are considered Asian.
