U.S. Census Sees More Asian Americans Living In Arizona
The recent U.S. census numbers showed that Arizona continued to be one of the fastest-growing states, led by Maricopa County’s nearly 16% growth from 2010 to 2020.
As part of that, the area showed an increase in diversity, with residents of Hispanic or Latino descent at the top. But another group — one not often as identified with Arizona — steadily grew again: Asian Americans.
Aggie Yellow Horse is a demographer and an assistant professor of Asian Pacific American Studies in ASU’s School of Social Transformation.
