Chinese comprised more than 20 percent of the 11.9 million people who identified themselves as Asians in Census 2000, according to a new report released today by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau. That translates into 2.7 million reporting as Chinese -- the largest Asian group in the United States.
The Asian Population: 2000, one in a series of Census 2000 briefs, also showed that about 50 percent of the Asians resided in three states: California, New York and Hawaii. Two of these states had Asian populations exceeding 1 million: California (4.2 million) and New York (1.2 million).

Census 2000 data on race are not directly comparable with data from the 1990 census or earlier censuses because in 2000, for the first time, respondents could report one or more races.
A listing of released and forthcoming Census 2000 titles can be found on the Census Bureau's Web site at <www.census.gov/population/www/cen2000/briefs/>, including briefs on topics such as race, Hispanic origin, gender and housing.
