WASHINGTON, May 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
ASIAN & PACIFIC AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH
Profile America - Saturday, May 10th.By presidential proclamation, this month recognizes one of the nation's fastest-growing population groups - those of Asian and Pacific American heritage. The observance began in 1978 with a joint congressional resolution honoring the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in the 1840s and the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1870 with the help of Chinese immigrants. The occasion was extended to the entire month in 1990. Now, over 20 million people in the U.S. are of Asian or Pacific American heritage, around 6 percent of the total population. California has the largest number of these residents, at over 6 million. Hawaii is the state where Asians make up the highest proportion of the total population at over 56 percent. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
