The 10 Ohio Cities With The Largest Asian Population For 2021


We used data and science to determine the cities in Ohio with the largest Asian population.

Editor’s Note: We updated this article for 2021. This is our seventh time ranking the cities in Ohio with the largest Asian population.

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 Ohio is 256,584 - at 2.2% of the total population of Ohio.

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

Here are the cities in Ohio with the largest Asian population in 2021:

  1. Dublin
  2. Beachwood
  3. Powell
  4. Mason
  5. The Village of Indian Hill
  6. Solon
  7. Blue Ash
  8. Highland Heights
  9. Oxford
  10. Middleburg Heights

Which city in Ohio had the largest Asian population? Dublin took the number one over all spot for the largest Asian in Ohio for 2021. 19.61% of Dublin identify as Asian.

How We Determined The Cities In Ohio With The Largest Asian Population For 2021

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 Ohio.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2015-2019 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 244 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Asian. The percentages ranked from 19.6% 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. Dublin took the distinction of being the most Asian, while Rittman was the least Asian city. You can download the data here.
