Across most of America, the African American and Hispanic communities comprise "most of the minority". We're not totally sure that's a term, but it's an accurate reflection of the state of race in America.

Asians are a "minority of the minority", generally. But not everywhere.

There are now over 17 million people who identify as Asian living in America, making up 5.6% of the total population. According to the most recent American Community Survey, the Asian population in Florida is 585,096 - at 2.7% of the total population of Florida.

And, unlike African Americans that fall under one group in the Census, Asian Americans have many sub-groups -- Chinese, Filipino, and Indian being the three largest sub-groups.

So, what how does the Asian population stratify across Florida? Which cities and towns in Florida have seen the greatest increase in their Asian population?

Here are the cities in Florida with the largest Asian population in 2023:

  1. Pinellas Park
  2. Temple Terrace
  3. Lake Mary
  4. Parkland
  5. Oviedo
  6. Weston
  7. Davie
  8. Winter Garden
  9. Cooper City
  10. Gainesville

Which city in Florida had the largest Asian population? Pinellas Park took the number one over all spot for the largest Asian in Florida for 2023. 10.61% of Pinellas Park identify as Asian.

Methodology: How We Determined The Cities In Florida With The Largest Asian Population For 2023

We still believe in the accuracy of data -- especially from the census. So that's where we went to get the breakdown of race across Florida.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2017-2021 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as Asian alone.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 208 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Asian. The percentages ranked from 10.6% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of Asian population with a higher score being more Asian than a lower score. Pinellas Park took the distinction of being the most Asian, while Perry was the least Asian city. You can download the data here.
