Note: Selected Metropolitan Areas (30 of 330) are those with at least 10 tracts and 3% or 20,000 or more Asians and Pacific Islanders in 1980. Higher values indicate more segregation; the reference group is non-Hispanic Whites. Segregation estimates are weighted by the size of the Asian/ Pacific Islander population.
