San Francisco and the Bay Area in general.

Seattle may get mentioned because Asians don't really have much competition for largest minority up here.

Seattle?!?!?! Try South Bay (Milpitas, Cupertino), SF (Daly City), or Monterey Park/Alhambra, OC.

Im suprised to see Sacramento so high on that percentage list.

That is an important distinction. When I was in San Francisco it seemed to me that the overall feel of the entire city had a "majority" asian populace.
I loved it. It was very cool, especially since I live in the southern part of the states, (South Carolina), where that's not the case.

San Francisco Downtown has all the chinese immigrant railroad workers, East/South Bay has all the IT workers because of Silicon Valley, OC has all the newer asian immigrants here for business opportunities and San Diego has most of the SEA population like Vietnamese/Filipino/Laos with a few CJK here and there because of the factories down in Tijuana, MX.

Everyone on this thread seems to have a definition of Asia that only includes East Asia. If you include residents from India, Packistan, Iran, Armenia, Isreal, Middle East. and eastern Russia, I think the total of Asian population in LA would go even higher!

That is what I think that the poster meant. I am guessing that they meant the asian race (what the US census defines it as...i know that there is no one asian race) because I think that the us census considers Iranians, Israelis, Middle easteners, pakistanis etc. white.

Is Honolulu considered WC? Because there are A LOT of asians there!!

were not considering it, but if you looked above, its 46% asian, which is a lot. SF Area is 18%, which still is significantly higher than the US as a whole

No surprise to see 4 out of the top 5 cities in CA, although I am a little surprised that Sacramento is above SD.

I'm glad someone didn't forget Honolulu, a city brimming with the peoples all 'round the Pacific.

I think this post has shown the immense diversity that L.A. has. I mean, when it comes to any yardstick of diversity (and I'll refrain from giving examples), the place wins hands-down. With L.A., the question is, what city in the world has more diversity.?

I've been to Toronto and it really is the most ethnically diverse city in the world. The diversity is evident everywhere you go. Indians, Chinese, Middle-Easterners, Europeans, Carribeans, Latin Americans, etc. Los Angeles is the most diverse in the US IMO.

I think those asian percentage numbers have significantly changed since the 2000 census. In North America I think Vancouver is the most asian percentage wise, although the Bay Area feels very asian as well. As far as Toronto being the most diverse, I would beg to differ because Toronto does not have a significant Latino/Hispanic population, and that means not just one type of Hispanic. LA would not meet the most diverse criteria either because the Hispanics there are all mostly from Mexico/Central America. New York wins easily for most diverse in North America. New York has lots of recent European immigrants from many nations, many recent African immigrants as well as a very large African american populace, large middle eastern presence, and most importantly a large Hispanic presence with many different Latin nations represented with significant populations, from Mexico to Puerto Rico to Cuba to Columbia to Dominican Republic they are in New York!

I would also think that many Asians throughout North America wouldn't bother to fill out census information due to either language or government paranoia.

With all respect to the compopolitanism of NYC, LA's latino population represents more that Mexico and Central America, though they may overshadow the other hispanics due to their large numbers. There are considerable numbers of Brazilians, and Argentinians here, as well as bolivians, Peruvians, Equadorians, Belizians, and carribean Islanders. There is a significant Ethiopian neighborhood, and recnt African immigrants are pretty common. I'm pretty familiar with NYC and while it does have a more significant Dominican, Haitian, and Puerto Rican Population, I believe LA has more diversity overall.
