Asian Indian Population 2005

By   | 
The Asian Indian population in the United States grew 38%, almost 15 times the national growth rate, between 2000-2005, according to the 2005 American Community Survey, which provides a window to the U.S. population at the middle of the century. Wyoming, South Dakota and Montana, each of which have exceedingly small Indian populations, recorded the highest growth rate; however, the rates mask significant margins of error, which make the estimates for each of the three states dubious. Maine and Rhode Island, recorded a decline in the Indian population, but those numbers are also dubious because of the margin of error.
