THE GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION OF THE ASIAN POPULATION The Asian population was heavily concentrated in the West. In the 2010 Census, of all respondents who reported Asian alone or in combination, 46 percent lived in the West (see Figure 3). An additional 22 percent lived in the South, 20 percent in the Northeast, and 12 percent in the Midwest. This pattern was similar for the Asian alone population.
