Fil-Ams Are 2nd Largest Asian Group

Posted: Mar 26, 2012


LOS ANGELES – The Filipino population in the United States reached 3.4 million in 2010, maintaining its status as the second largest Asian community after the Chinese, according to a recent US Census report. Meanwhile, Asians are the fastest growing population among racial or ethnic groups, nearly doubling within the past ten years, a recent US Census Bureau report found.

Filipino-American officials are excited about the growing number of Filipinos and other Asian Americans in the country and are hoping it could lead to more political power.With 17.3 million people identifying themselves as Asians, millions of them Asian Americans, politicians should start focusing on gathering their vote, said Susan Dilkes, Executive Director of Filipino American Service Group Inc.
