Can I have a link to these stats please? This time last year I was in San Francisco and I noticed that there were A LOT of Asians there. I think most of the Asians in the US, live in California? Am I right?

^ It took me several hours worth of all sorts of calculations to arrive at those statistics, but everything's from the US Census Bureau's American FactFinder (Census 2000). I basically wasted two hours of my time, only to stumble upon this:

But, continuing with the calculations...

LA has more because the city is much bigger but SF is more proportion wise and both cities pops seem equally diverse. that is for the entire bay area not just SF most of the indians are in the silicon valley. there are almost none in SF itself.

^ Why are you stating the obvious? Duh, the San Francisco Bay Area has a larger Asian population than the Greater Los Angeles Area on a per capita basis. We all knew that.

The logic that a CSA's size directly corresponds to the size of a certain ethnic group is nonsensical. The Greater Los Angeles Area is 2.5 times as large as the San Francisco Bay Area, yet the latter has larger Chinese, Indian, and Laotian populations. Furthermore, the Greater Los Angeles Area has 8 times as many Bangladeshi, 3.4 times as many Cambodians, 3.3 times as many Indonesians, 4 times as many Koreans, 3.7 times as many Malaysians, 4.3 times as many Sri Lankans, and 3.7 times as many Thai -- all while the Greater Los Angeles area is 2.5 times the size of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Did you even look at those percentages? While both CSAs are dominated by their Chinese and Filipino populations, the Greater Los Angeles Area is clearly the more diverse of the two. Where are YOUR statistics to prove me wrong?

I would like to see statistics for the cities of LA and SF. in LA koreans are probably the largest group since Chinese are mostly in the SGV and Fillipinos in Carson and Laotiona in LB. and Asians in other cities like Ceritos. I don't think there are many south asian communities in the LA area. in the bay reas Fillipnos are mainly in Vallejo and Daly City and Indians are in Fremonst, Milipitas, and the Silicon Valley, and Vietnemese in San Jose.

I don't think anyone can argue one region is more diverse than the other: I'd say they're each equally diverse.

Here you go:

http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet...ectID=15168684

Comparing municipalities is quite pointless, as city limits are arbitrary. Each municipality has a unique relationship with its greater CSA in terms of ethnic distribution. For example, there are only 60,000 Chinese living in Los Angeles (city) -- 40% of San Francisco's (city) Chinese population. If we compare CSA figures, Los Angeles has 90% the amount of Chinese San Francisco has.

You have not shown me any evidence (by that, I mean statistics) up to this point. I'm waiting.

Although I agree Honolulu isn't exactly "west coast", since we are in this section I'm going to have to bat for the home team here..

~65% Asian or Pacific Islander (probably more when you take into account mixed-race), and the second largest group being ~20% white, plus a city itself that is heavily in the Asian and Hawaiian tradition.

In my own non-scientific survey and based on surnames It looks to me that Hawaii is mostly Japanese, Filipino, Samoan and Chinese.

Well according to National Census, the SF Bay Area is the only region that predicts an increase of Asians by 2050, even larger increase than Hispanics, a fast growing community nationwide.
I consider San Francisco very diverse, but sometimes I feel it segregated. African American living in Hunter's Point-Bay Shore, Chinese living in the Richmond and Chinatown, Latinos and Hispanics in the Mission district, Balboa and Glen Park, Russians living over Geary and the Richmond, Italians in North Beach, hippies in Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, gay community in Dolores Park, Castro and Church, and so on. What I can say San Franciscans have learned to live peacefully with each other and with tolerance.

Southern area: Ingleside/ Ocean View/ Crocker Amazon/ Excelsior/ Visitacion Valley/ Portola. A lot of middle class Asians live here. Richmond is quite expensive to live in, so is the Sunset and Chinatown is usually lower class or senior citizens. The rest of SF's Asians live in the southern parts; I also live in the southern parts. There is a bus from my area that goes straight to Chinatown. My neighborhood is mostly Chinese or Vietnamese.
