Indian population in USA crosses 30 lakh mark

Demographic studies of the 2010 U.S Census shows the Indian-American population in the U.S (including multiple ethnicities) grew 68 per cent over the 2000-2010 decade from 1.9 million to 3.19 million.

Thus the Indian-Americans become the third largest Asian-American group in the U.S after Chinese-Americans (3.79 million) and Filipino-Americans (3.42 million), but with a much faster growth rate.

According to data released by the Asian American Foundation and Saalt, an organization devoted to strengthening South Asian Communities in America, the voting age population of Indian-Americans (who are U.S citizens) has now crossed 1 million. It grew 100 per cent from 2000, when it was 576,000, to 1.15 million in 2010.
