WASHINGTON, DC – The Asian Indian alone population became the nation’s largest Asian alone population group in 2020, growing by over 50% to 4,397,737 between 2010 and 2020.
The nation’s most populous Asian alone or in any combination group in 2020 was the Chinese, except Taiwanese population with 5.2 million, an increase of 37.2% since 2010, a US Census report written by Brittany Rico, Joyce Key Hahn, and Cody Spence said.
The 2020 Census demographic characteristics on 41 detailed Asian groups report show that the Nepalese population increased over 250% and was the fastest growing Asian alone group.
The next largest Asian alone groups and their population change from 2010 to 2020:

· Filipino alone, 3,076,108 (up 20.4%).
· Vietnamese alone, 1,951,746 (up 26.0%).
· Korean alone, 1,508,575 (up 6.0%).
· Japanese alone, 741,544 (down 3.2%).
Of the six largest detailed Asian alone or in any combination groups, the largest share of each group (more than 18%) lived in California in 2020.
New York had the second largest proportions of the Chinese, except Taiwanese (15.9%) and Korean (8.1%) alone or in any combination populations in 2020.
Texas was the state with the second largest proportions of Asian Indian (10.6%) and Vietnamese (14.2%) alone or in any combination populations in 2020.
Hawaii had the second largest proportions of the Filipino (8.6%) and Japanese (19.7%) alone or in any combination populations in 2020.
Washington became an increasingly popular place of residence and is now in the top five home states for all but the Asian Indian alone or in any combination population. That’s a change from 2010 when Washington was in the top five only for the Filipino, Japanese and Vietnamese alone or in any combination populations.
