Researched and written by Jessica S. Barnes and Claudette E. Bennett of the US Census Bureau, this 12-page report provides a brief introduction to the regional and national distribution of the Asian and Asian-American population in the United States. The report begins with a detailed explanation of the problems presented by the 2000 Census data, largely due to the fact that the questions regarding race were significantly modified from those used in the 1990 Census. Some of the key findings of the report include the fact that the majority of Asians in the United States live in the West, and that half live in just three states. This report should interest those in the fields of demography and human geography.
