America's Asian Population Demographic Patterns & Trends

As the U.S. total population increased from Census 2000 281.4 million to Census 2010 308.7 million (9.7 percent), the Asian population increased from 10.2 million to 14.7 million (43.3 percent). Of the Asian population, the Asian Indian population (see race categories) increased from 1.7 million to 2.8 million (69.4 percent). Major sub-groups of the Asian population (Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese) are shown in a table presented below.

The Asian population distributed unevenly throughout the U.S. As of Census 2010, and among Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), the Asian Indian population ranged from a high of 6.6 percent of the total population in the Yuba City, CA MSA to just 44 persons in Farmington, NM MSA. The highest number of Asian Indians is in the New York MSA (526,133). Examine Asian population distribution by type and metro using the interactive table below. More about Asian race groups (below).
