Korean, Japanese, Pakistani, and Cambodian populations as a % of the total Asian population

This map looks at different Asian ethnic groups and nationalities, and examines how they are distributed across the United States. Each group is looked at as a % of the total Asian population in each state, rather than looking at each group as a % of the total population of a state. So, for example, Cambodians make up 15% of the Asian population in Rhode Island, but only make up 0.44% of the total population of Rhode Island. We can see that the Japanese are more strongly represented in Hawaii and Rocky Mountain states, relative to other Asian groups. Future maps will create distributions for more Asian groups, such as Hmong, Laotian, and Thai populations. I chose Korean Japanese, Pakistani, and Cambodian because these are the 5th through 8th largest Asian groups in the United States, and I had already done the top 4 largest groups (Chinese, Indian, Filipino, Vietnamese) here.
