Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders collectively represent one of the U.S.’ fastest growing racial demographic cohorts. With over 24 million AAPI individuals (including mixed-race) residing across the nation, this rapidly expanding population has concurrently become the nation’s fastest-growing voter bloc. The 2020 presidential election and 2022 midterm elections witnessed AAPI voters participate at unprecedented turnout rates, exceeding the margin of victory in many voting battleground areas.

In recognition of the AAPI community’s rapid growth and impact, AAPI Data has partnered with Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) to create state-specific data factsheets on the AAPI electorate, serving as vital resources tailored to all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Key data points include:

  • Number of AAPI eligible voters statewide
  • Aggregate AAPI population statistics and growth trajectories
  • Prominent ethnic subgroup populations (e.g. Chinese, Indian, Filipino)
  • Counties with highest AAPI residential density
  • Limited english proficiency rates
  • AAPI voter engagement identification
  • Socioeconomic challenge indicators

For political campaigns, elected representatives, advocacy organizations, media entities and academic researchers, these fact sheets can unlock valuable insights, serving as a resource to better understand and strategically engage the AAPI electorate in each state.
