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 Georgia is 430,473 - at 4.1% of the total population of Georgia.

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 Georgia? Which cities and towns in Georgia have seen the greatest increase in their Asian population?

Here are the cities in Georgia with the largest Asian population in 2022:

  1. Morrow
  2. Clarkston
  3. Johns Creek
  4. Duluth
  5. Alpharetta
  6. Lilburn
  7. Suwanee
  8. Dunwoody
  9. Doraville
  10. Milton

Methodology: How We Determined The Cities In Georgia With The Largest Asian Population For 2022

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 Georgia.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2016-2020 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 120 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Asian. The percentages ranked from 30.3% 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. Morrow took the distinction of being the most Asian, while Cedartown was the least Asian city. You can download the data here.
