2010 Decennial Census SF-1 data. Based on the total Asian population, both single race and mixed race. Includes Hispanic Asians and non-Hispanic Asians.
In its public data, the Census Bureau sometimes relocates individual households with rare characteristics to protect the privacy of potentially identifiable individuals. Therefore, the bureau warns users that totals may not be correct for small groups, especially at the local level. In the interactive map for all Asian Americans, "share" refers to proportion of the total state or county population.
