Asians in the Suburbs

Publication Abstract

O'Hare, William P., William H. Frey, and Dan Fost. 1994. "Asians in the Suburbs." American Demographics, 16(5): 32-8.

"Forget Chinatown: most Asian Americans live in middle-class suburbs. The biggest markets for Asian suburbanites are in western states, but more than half of the top-25 Asian metros are elsewhere. Asian suburbs are diverse markets, ranging from Filipino Daly City to Chinese Monterey Park. And while suburban Asians are usually assimilated Americans, they also tend to preserve ancestral customs."
