Asian Americans


 U.S. Asian American population has the fastest growth rate of any major racial or ethnic group. Asian American diaspora grew 72% between 2000 and 2015, and is estimated to be approximately 20 million, 5.6% of the total population.Six origin groups – Chinese, Indian, Filipino, Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese – accounted for 85% of all Asian Americans as of 2015.


Asian Americans are the highest-income, and best-educated racial group in the U.S. About half of Asians ages 25 and older have a bachelor’s degree or more, compared with 30% of general Americans population, and higher share than other ethnicities. Asian households in the U.S. had a median annual income of $73,060 in 2015, higher than the $53,600 among all U.S. households.


Seven-in-ten Asians living in the U.S. ages five and older are English proficient, and 68% also speak a language other than English at home. Large majorities of Japanese, Filipinos and Indians are especially English proficient. English-speaking Asian Americans lead other racial, ethnic groups in use of several common technologies. 

Majority are Multi-gen and foreign born

Multigenerational families are households that include two or more adult generations or one that includes both grandparents and grandchildren. About 26% of Asians live in multigenerational households, a higher share than the U.S. Immigrants make up a higher share of some Asian origin groups than others. They also place greater value on marriage, parenthood, hard work and career success, than other Americans. Among all Asians in the U.S., nearly six-in-ten are foreign born, significantly larger than the immigrant share among Americans overall (13%) and other racial and ethnic groups.

About us

California has the most Asians

California has the largest Asian American population (almost 6 million). Nearly half  of U.S. Asian Americans live in the West, with about one-third in California alone. Some 23% of Asian Americans live in the South, 20% in the Northeast and 12% in the Midwest. Hawaii is the only state where U.S. Asians accounted for 56% of the population in 2015, and make for the majority.


Asian “Floor Culture”

Unlike Western culture, where floor is  part of ground,  Asian cultures revere the  floor. They sit on the floor, eat on the floor, entertain guests on the floor,  and sleep on the floor. Reason why you see Asians take off their shoes before entering houses.
