As of 2010, Morrisville was over 27% Asian. It's highly educated (~65% of adults with a bachelor's degree or higher) and a 1/3 of the population speaks a language other than English at home. In addition to the large Indian population, Morrisville is also the co-HQ of Chinese owned Lenovo.

Interesting. I wonder what the connection is between Burma and Indianapolis. That one is pretty odd.

OK, this isn't a metro area but a somewhat well known small town with a surprisingly high percentage of Asians. Walnut Grove, MN, famous for the TV series Little House on the Prairie, is now 35% Asian. Total numbers are small of course. The whole town still has just under 900 people. Still, for a small Minnesota town three hours west of Minneapolis, I thought it was interesting. There was a large influx of Hmong immigrants settling there in the early 2000s. I'd love to know the thought processes that led them to choose Walnut Grove, MN for their new home.

I wonder if it has to do with refugee resettlement, as where has been a recent wave of Burmese and Bhutanese refugees in my area due to resettlement.

Iowa has a large Asian population as well as Hispanic but certain areas of Iowa have more Asian than Hispanic and others more Swedish or Dutch, there are also large Amish and Mennonite areas spread around as well and I almost forgot about the German population that has been in Iowa for a long time.
