Ancestry Maps


Asian ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


In the 2000 census, 238,960 people in the U.S. claimed Asian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 20 percent of those people said they were of Asian ancestry. (The Census Bureau notes that the choice of "Asian" as a person's ancestry may encompass several ethnic groups.)

The links at left lead to information on other races and ethnicities.
