There are plenty of Middle Easterners in the Northeast and Midwest...I see them everyday where I live.

It's also good to see states like New York, New Jersey, and Texas catch up to California on Asian population. I wonder if things remain the same, one of these states may be able to surpass California?

California has more Asians than Texas, NY, and New Jersey combined. The answer to that is...not for several decades if that.

Texas has a growing Southeast Asian population (Vietnamese, Laotian, Camobdian, Thai especially), much of whom are domestic migrants out of California.

New York and New Jersey combined have a larger South Asian population than California, and both states are about to surpass could CA in East Asian percentage pretty soon.

Though admittedly, it would be fair to say that a huge disproportionate amount of Asians live in California.

There used to be a regular here with truly bizarre obsession with the numbers, percentages and distributions of Asian Americans. It was like his entire identity hinged on sustaining a myth about the Asian population in NY. After about the 15th mindless conflagration showing California was home to 5 million Asians vs 1.5 million in NY, he eventually went away. Maybe he went to work for the Orly Taitz campaign.

Change in Asian location quotient by MSA (2000-2010)



(Map courtesy of Aaron Renn.)

What this map illustrates is the change in the concentration of the Asian population in every MSA, relative to the change in the national concentration. The darker the blue, the more concentrated the Asian population became relative to the United States. The darker the red, the more diluted it became relative to the United States. It doesn't mean that red areas are losing Asian people; it just means that their proportion of the total Asian population has decreased.

Congrats to Georgia on its Asian population. It definitely clobbers every other state in the deep south and it can hold its own against the big power players.

Asian Indians are still the largest sub group of Asians in Metro Atlanta, but by next census I expect Koreans to have taken the crown. It's incredible how much the Korean population has exploded in Georgia. Literally, Koreatowns will spring up in suburbs overnight.

At least two current U.S. state Governors that I know of, are of full-blooded Asian Indian parentage

Nikki Haley (South Carolina) and Bobby Jindal (Louisiana) - both Republicans

Interesting map. Should go without saying that the blue areas aren't necessarily gaining Aisan population just gaining percentage, but I'll mention it. A county I used to live in is losing population, but their Asian population percentage is edging up a tiny bit. I imagine that that is what happened in that case.

Those facts are for you people who still think the South is backwards.

Interesting that the Eastern Seaboard from Maine to Virginia is all blue, while the near entirety of California is red except for the Inland Empire.
