The following is a partial list of United States cities and towns in which a majority (over 50%) of the population is Asian American or Asian, according to data from the 2010 Census for California and New Jersey and 2000 Census for other states. This list does not include cities in which, according to the 2000 Census and 2010 Census, merely a plurality (as opposed to a majority) of the residents are Asian American. The list below is organized by state and, within each state, by population size. The percentage of each city's population that is Asian American is listed in parentheses next to the city's name.
