OK, after looking around more, it looks like Anchorage actually has the most diverse census tract, despite every tract being plurality white. This is the least white one.

White 24%
Asian 17%
Native American 16%
Black 13%
Hispanic 12%
Other 9%
Multiracial 9%

Question: what's up with South Richmond Hill, in Queens? Several tracts are around 20% multiracial and every tract in the neighborhood is at least 10% or so.

Richmond Hill has a large Indo-Caribbean community (Guyanese, Trinidadians etc.), so it's likely people with South Asian/Black ancestry.

The city of Jersey City has racial stats similar to these census tracts.

Anybody know why Ft Worth grew by 39% - well above the Tarrant growth rate? Incorporations, or is there something else afoot?

"Fort Worth's sharp population growth was tempered by the more than 30 square miles the city annexed over the last decade."

Ft. Worth's expansion in the last decade also pushed it a bit into Denton, Wise, and Parker Counties, which also contributed to the city outpacing Tarrant County.

interesting that the multi-racial population in these tracts is actually decreasing though

What's the most Asian tract in the entire country?  Somewhere in Queens, Hawaii, or San Francisco?

My tract is 62% fwiw

edit: Most I've found is a 90% S.F. tract

I looked around and couldn't find anything more than the 90% SF ward. Closest was an 88% ward in Manhattan's Chinatown.

They're supposed to report as White. Some (Muslim) ones identify as Other or even Asian. Might be worth taking a look at Dearborn to see if there's any changes to that.

Dearborn reported as just under 87% non-Hispanic White and just 2% Asian in the last census.  The Non-Hispanic White share of population actually increased by about 2 points from 2000, most likely at the expense of multiracial or other - though I only copied NH-White/Black/American Indian/Asian/Hispanic to my worksheet and would have to go back to the original dataset to see whether Dearborn had more multi-racials or others.  Per Wikipedia, it was multiracials in 2000.  The percentage of Dearborn residents reporting as one of the 5 listed categories increased from about 91% to about 95% over the past decade.

So I guess that when we talk about Asians, we talk about people from the Far East (China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, etc.) and from the Indian subcontinent.

Can anyone find high (over 40%) Asian tracts outside the West Coast and the urban areas? I find one 54% outside Philly and several over 40%, up to 49%, in MontCo, MD.

I suppose that depends on how one defines "urban" and "west coast".  There's a 70% Asian census tract in Edison, NJ.  Central NJ has a lot of Asians.

In Georgia, there are >40% Asian tracts in the northeast Atlanta suburbs.

In Louisiana, there are two Asian majority tracts in far eastern Orleans Parish (basically on the edge of the bayou) and Baton Rouge suburbia has a 41% Asian tract.

In Texas, Fort Bend County has plenty of Asian tracts, including one that's 67% Asian. A bunch in Houston suburbia too, up to 71% Asian. College Station has a 41% Asian tract.

NoVA has a few, too; and IIRC there's an Asian tract near Charlotte, NC. (edit: yep, at 41%. Also I see some Asian areas outside of Detroit, too)

There's a 70% Asian tract on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.  And there are 40-55% Asian tracts that include part of or are very near to the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison and the big universities in Champaign, Illinois, Ann Arbor and Lansing, Michigan.

Perhaps more people reporting as other??

I visited the area quite a bit as a kid as my grandparents lived right on Liberty Ave.

Morrisville, NC has one tract which is 40% Asian, a few of the surrounding ones are 30%.  Depending on what you mean by urban, you have a 42% in southwest Charlotte (while its in the city, the area looks suburban)

Also have a 40% tracts in western Nassau (Herricks with a few surrounding tracts at 39%, and others in the 30% + range (with some more over 40% ones over the Queens border

Morrisville is due to the proximity to Research Triangle Park. Not sure about the Charlotte one.

That surprised me. While looking at that, I also saw one in Athens.

It appears that the only states without a black plurality tract are OR, ID, MT, WY, ND, SD, UT, NM, AK, HI, RI, VT, NH, and ME.
