During the 1980s, the population of Chinese Americans nearly doubled—1,618,973 according to the 1990 data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census (although the Filipino-American community had by then become the largest Asian subgroup). The largest numbers of Chinese Americans reported in the 1990 census are in the states of California (704,850), New York (284,144), Hawaii (68,804), Texas (63,232), New Jersey (59,084), Massachusetts (53,792), and Illinois (49,936).

Chinese immigrants have come to the United States from British Hong Kong, the People s Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), and from various countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Approximately 63.3 percent of the Chinese-American respondents to the 1980 census had been foreign (non-U.S.) born.
