Statistics about the AAPI population in the U.S.


AAPI stands for Asian American and Pacific Islander. The term is used to describe a diverse and fast-growing population of 23 million Americans that includes roughly 50 ethnic groups with roots in more than 40 countries. Together, Asian and Pacific Americans make up approximately 6 percent of the U.S. population. Learn more about some of these individuals and their stories.
