Washington DC: 2,366

Miami: 997
Atlanta: 989
You misunderstand the question.

1. It's not purely immigration. Much of the growth can be internal migration, or births-deaths.

2. It can be a percentage increase question.

3. The question was in present tense. You're referring to mid-2014 to mid-2015.

Here's why Chicago's Chinatown is booming, even as others across the U.S. fade - Chicago Tribune

What the link says:
- At a time when traditional urban Chinatowns in Manhattan, San Francisco, Boston and Philadelphia are fading due to gentrification and changing cultural landscapes, Chicago's Chinatown is growing larger — becoming what experts say could be a model for Chinatown survival in the U.S. In Chicago, where several neighborhoods are no longer defined by the immigrant or ethnic groups that once occupied them, Chinatown is an exception, having anchored the area centered around Cermak Road and Wentworth Avenue since 1912.

5 Biggest Chinatowns in the United States and Canada - WiseToast

#1 San Francisco
#2 NYC
#3 Chicago

Link for Chicago says:
- With a population of around 70,000 (2010 census) this is one of the fastest growing Chinese communities in the US today.
You will see a big, red “Welcome” gate when you visit this neighborhood. The Chinese American Museum of Chicago is a must visit.
That source you've posted is not accurate. They put NYC's Chinatown as 2nd largest, yet even within NYC I think it is already only 3rd largest.

It's the DC metro area and unlike Chicago or Philly given the cost of commercial rental space in DC, hardly surprising. Montgomery County MD is kind of the hot spot for Chinese immigrants in the DC area from my experience.

Ithaca NY metro has the 3rd highest Chinese percentage behind only the 2 major Bay Area metros at about 5% of the metro. That is out of all metro and micro areas. Another college town area, Pullman WA is 4th at about 4% Chinese. Champaign-Urbana is 6th, Ames IA is 7th and Ann Arbor MI is 8th in this regard. So, it looks like major college towns may be the way to go.

Pullman is 4% Chinese?

I took the question to be about Chinese people, not Chinese-Americans. Chinese-Americans have much more in common with European-Americans than they do with Chinese immigrants, so it seems silly to create a thread about that. That gets rid of the births question, and most of the internal migration question.

Percentages is not a great measure either. If a city had 100 Chinese immigrants, and 10 years later has 1100, that city had an 1000% increase, but only gained 1000 people. Meanwhile, a city that had 500,000 Chinese immigrants, and 10 years later had 700,000, had only a 40% gain, but gained 200,000 people. Raw numbers are the best measure, unless both cities had a similar gain, in which case percentages can be useful.

Things haven't changed too much in the last few years. NYC, LA, and the Bay Area are still the big draws for Chinese immigrants.

I dont think I did.

1) The question was in regards to fastest growing Chinese communities. My wife is blood Chinese but is culturally Thai. She doesnt consider herself part of the Chinese community at all. She is Thai. Thats how most people view it.

2) Thats a fair point.

3) The most recent data is from 2015. Thats the best available anywhere. There is no data from 2016 or 2017 yet.

I'm sure the link is a few years old. But it does point out NYC's shrinking Chinatown in gentrification of non-Chinese .... eating away at it in gentrification and notes that for SF too. Though still a huge one.

What it points out is Chicago's Chinatown growing in population of Chinese and in them .... even moving into adjoining neighborhoods. So kind of the opposite of these other major Chinatowns. Chicago has plenty of areas to further gentrify then to erode into Chinatown forcing more of its ethnic residents out and as the link says.... one of the last truly original ethnic neighborhoods to remain a haven for them yet today in Chicago.

A Greektown, Italian Village and Ukrainian Village as once old ethnic neighborhoods. Are now with very little of that ethnicity left but for ethnic eateries still there like Greektown. Its Italian Village is actually the campus to the University of Illinois Chicago today largely. Its Ukrainian Village became more Latino before gentrification made it a Top neighborhood highly sought after today near the core. Greektown is just west of the city's financial Center the Loop that's been renewed to a totally other kind of neighborhood. But the names remain.
