Hmong are a small population period. According to Wiki:

"Today, approximately 270,000 Hmong/Mong people reside in the United States, the plurality of whom live in California (65,095 according to the 2000 U.S. census), Minnesota (41,800), and Wisconsin (33,791).Chico, Fresno, Eureka, Banning, Stockton, and Sacramento, California; Detroit, Michigan; Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota; Lowell, Massachusetts; and Madison, Milwaukee, and Wausau, Wisconsin have especially high concentrations of Hmong/Mong people.

There are smaller Hmong/Mong populations scattered across the country, including Anchorage, Alaska, Missoula, Montana;Northeastern Washington State[Spokane]; western North Carolina (Charlotte, Hickory, and Morganton); northeastern Georgia (Auburn, Duluth, Monroe, Atlanta, and Winder); Linda Vista, California; Wisconsin (Eau Claire, Appleton, Green Bay, La Crosse, and Sheboygan), Winooski, Vermont; and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, centered around the Pennsylvania towns of Ephrata and Denver. There is also a small community of several thousand Hmong who migrated to French Guiana in the late 1970s and early 1980s.[57]"

I was told when I lived in Kansas that there is a significant Hmong population in Wichita and Dodge City working in the Cattle Yards.
