Asian American Population Increases

Last week census statistics unveiled that the Asian American population increased by 434,000 to surpass 15.2 million, or 5 percent of the estimated total U.S. population of 301.6 million. AsiAms are also the second fastest-growing minority group after Hispanics. The white population grew by 0.3 percent between 2006-2007.

Hot Spots: Five million Asians live in California, which had the largest Asian population, as well as the largest numerical increase, of 106,000, during the 2006 to 2007 period. New York (1.4 million) and Texas (915,000) followed in population. Texas (44,000) and New York (33,000) followed in numerical increase.

    I’d love to make my way towards warmer climates…LORD WILLING!
    I think you need to make your way to the Northeast and brave the diversity in weather and people…
