Asian population in L.A.

26 09 2007

I was curious how many Asian people are living around the “new Chinatown” (Archadia/Monterey Park/San Gabriel/Rowland Heights/etc.). This page comes up in Google search. http://www.laalmanac.com/population/po38.htm

I picked the cities that are located around that area and have more than 7% of Asian. And here is the list I come up with.
