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 234,192 – at 2.0% 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?

We broke down the most recent census data to determine the cities in Ohio with the largest Asian population in 2019:

  1. Dublin (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  2. Solon (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  3. Beachwood (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  4. Blue Ash (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  5. Mason (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  6. Powell (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  7. Pepper Pike (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  8. Highland Heights (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  9. The Village of Indian Hill (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  10. Middleburg Heights (Photos | Homes For Sale)

Which city in Ohio had the largest Asian population?

Dublin took the number one over all spot for the largest Asian in Ohio for 2019. 18.32% of Dublin identify as Asian.

How We Determined The Cities In Ohio With The Largest Asian Population For 2019

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 2013-2017 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 247 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Asian. The percentages ranked from 18.3% 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. Dublin took the distinction of being the most Asian, while Martins Ferry was the least Asian city.

owell is an affluent city in Delaware County, Ohio, United States. The population was 11,500 at the 2010 census.

The community was first settled around 1801, two years before Ohio became a state. It was named “Middlebury” at the time, because the first settlers came from the Middlebury, Connecticut area. In 1857, Judge Thomas Powell established the first post office in the community, and the residents decided to adopt his name. The town of Powell had its start in the building of the railroad through that territory. Powell was finally incorporated as a municipality in 1947. The population remained small until the late 1980s, when residential development expanding from the northern Columbus metropolitan area reached Powell. In twenty years, the population rose from less than 400 to over 6,000.
