Oh yeah, Alaska. Got all the other ones easily. Being a former Virginia resident probably helped. My hometown turned in to one of the biggest K-towns in the country after I left.

On most quizzes there seems to be a pattern, but I didn't notice one here. I mean four of the five Pacific States are here, but other than that I can't find one.

Perhaps it's the states with high population cities compared to the rest of their population since those immigrating would likely choose major cities to move to. That explains Massachusetts (Boston), New York (New York City), and, surprisingly enough, Alaska, where Anchorage residents make up more than 40% of the state's population (though it's still a pitiful 300,000 or so).

Dc, Boston, NYC + Pacific Coast. That's usually the pattern. Sometimes with the addition of Chicago.

My thinking was -- besides the Pacific states, which are simply closest -- that most immigrants came through New York City, and most of those settled nearby, so that gives us New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey, and that a lot of international people work in and around DC, which gives us Maryland and Virginia.

Most immigrants come through New York? Not since the closing of Ellis Island. Since airplane travel became popular immigrants arrive in the US through anywhere. The pattern is explained by chain migration and institutions that support immigrants or actively encouraged settlers like Alaska and Hawaii.

My basic thought was the more liberal states in the north east. I wasn't entirely wrong...

Wasn't the least bit surprised, though Nevada threw me for a loop.

I live in Delaware and can tell you there aren't many Asians on the Eastern Shore of Maryland...I'm sure it's a different story with all of the government offices and more populated areas in Western Maryland.

I think s/he meant "Central Maryland" rather than western. The counties usually considered to be "Western Maryland" are basically a mountainous version of the eastern shore and are very rural/ agricultural. I would presume most of the Asian population is in Central Maryland, which includes DC, Baltimore, and the huge metro area that encompasses both cities.

Question: I've noticed that usage in the US of the term "Asian" sometimes means people from the east of Asia (e.g. China, Japan, Korea etc). Is that what's meant by Asian on this quiz, or does it mean anyone from the whole continent of Asia?

The instructions indicate that the data depends on self-identification. So, probably a bit of both. And you are correct about the inconsistent usage of the term.

How the hell did I get 7/10 (average)? I'm British and have absolutely no idea where Asians live in USA, I was purely guessing.
