Taiwanese[edit]

This article lumps Taiwanese together with Chinese. That is a contraversial decision. It would be more informative (and less incendiary) to break the data down and let people use whichever definition is appropriate for them.

If you are to separate Taiwanese, then you should separate everything by smaller groups, like Cantonese and Hoi-San, since those groups significantly differ from others.
Why don't just delete all the sub group information, it is not accurate, controversial and not complete — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.119.0.247 (talk) 17:13, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Random small cities[edit]

Why are there all the random small cities with 1% on this page? I say that every city on here should have either above 10% or above 5000 population of Chinese Americans. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.216.1.135 (talk) 06:03, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Sometimes that will not work though, because a city with 500,000+ people and 20,000 Chinese residents will still be at 1%, or at the very least, under 5%. I thought you had mistaken it for being that everything on here was a small city. Now, if only Los Angeles had a mere 60,000... Woo... no traffic whatsoever! Dasani 03:47, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

It may be equally informative to rank according to absolute population, rather than percent population. e.g. how come Atlanta and St Louis are not on the list at all? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.21.216.164 (talk) 16:09, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

1% confers "significance"?[edit]

the Canadian equivalent page List of Canadian cities with large Chinese populations has been up for debate at WPTALK:CANADA and has worn a "notability" tag since 2008. What's "large"? What's "signficant". This page makes a call that 1% is sufficient for an urban population, and 10% for suburban populations. Who made this call? Surely not the US census. How is one percent "significant", and even 10% "significant"? The equivalent African American and Hispanic American pages don't have their own bars set so low (rather a lot higher, as I recall).Skookum1 (talk) 06:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Even 1% of a big city could represent a large number. I'm not sure why the article was renamed "significant" from "large", which is how similar articles are named. List of U.S. cities with large Vietnamese American populations includes cities with more than 10,000 qualifying people, even if that only represents 0.5% of the population. It also includes lists with far smaller populations. There's no reason that this article shouldn't follow the standard of the other similar articles, whatever those might be.   Will Beback  talk  23:25, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Random small cities "Illinois" section[edit]

Urbana has a 6% Chinese population, not including Taiwanese, 7% including Taiwanese. Champaign and Savoy are both 2%. Not sure if Savoy would be big enough to qualify. This according to epodunk.comYeliab1 (talk) 03:32, 4 September 2012 (UTC) Did you test this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:805:8100:A8B0:F578:56B:CC11:245B (talk) 23:59, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

California - Greater Los Angeles[edit]

Bradbury appears to be listed twice with different rankings. Fettlemap (talk) 04:53, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
