Hi, everyone. I currently live here in Austin, Texas(pretty nice city ...) and am a Korean national myself. However, I am planning to move to the other cities. I wanna know which city(including their suburbs) has a higher percentage of Korean-Americans than Austin? and what about their public transportation systems?


1. Birmingham, AL

2. Auburn, AL

3. Raleigh, NC

4. Salt Lake City, UT


Sorry for my poor English, anyways I'd really appreciate your replies.

2012 Korean population by metropolitan area:

Auburn-Opelika, AL
Pop. 1,633 or 1.1% of the population

Raleigh-Cary, NC
Pop. 5,568 or 0.5% of the population

Salt Lake City, UT
Pop. 3,084 or 0.3% of the population

Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, TX
Pop. 4,407 or 0.2% of the population

Birmingham-Hoover, AL
Pop. 1,657 or 0.1% of the population

Metropolitan areas include central city/cities and suburbs. So it looks like you should look more into the Raleigh and Auburn areas.

I don't have the specific info on the amount of Korean-Americans living in those cities, but I do know Raleigh will have the most amount of Asian-Americans, with Salt Lake City coming in second place. In regards to your transportation question, Salt Lake City has the most advance transportation system out of all of the cities you posted. The Triangle (Raleigh/Durham metro) has a couple of light and commuter rails in planning, but it might be a long time before any of that ever gets built.

This map shows the Korean population by county throughout the United States. The biggest clusters are the Los Angeles area, NYC area (esp Queens and Bergen Co, NJ), DC, and SF Bay areas.

People from India tend to get lumped into the "Asian-American" category.

The RTP area has a large community of Indians, and then the other communities get smaller from there.
