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 222,866 – at 1.9% 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 2018:

  1. Dublin (Photos | Jobs)
  2. Solon (Photos | Jobs)
  3. Blue Ash (Photos | Jobs)
  4. The Village Of Indian Hill (Photos | Jobs)
  5. Beachwood (Photos | Jobs)
  6. Powell (Photos | Jobs)
  7. Pepper Pike (Photos | Jobs)
  8. Mason (Photos | Jobs)

How We Determined The Cities In Ohio With The Largest Asian Population For 2018

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 2012-2016 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 246 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Asian. The percentages ranked from 16.9% 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 North College Hill was the least Asian city.

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.

It was founded in 1834 on the western edge of the Allegheny Plateau, just west of the city of Mansfield. After being incorporated in 1958, Ontario became a heavy manufacturing center because of the Erie Railroad line, and its proximity to Mansfield. However, its status in that regard began to decline in the late 20th century, when much of the Erie Railroad that once ran through the city was abandoned; and shifts in the manufacturing industry led to the relocation or repositioning of many factories. The city’s industry has since diversified into the service economy, including education, finance and healthcare. The city is also a major regional retail hub serving the entire North-Central Ohio area, with a shopping population of over 150,000.
