Cook county has the most Asian population

Latinx population increased by almost 100,000 and Asians by nearly 45,000 in Cook County. The same could be said in the rest of the nearby suburban counties.

However, the white population dropped, which is part of a more significant trend in Illinois. The white population fell by nearly 700,000 compared to 2010.


Hispanic population grows in leaps and bound

The most significant increase in Illinois was in the Latinx community, growing by nearly 310,000. That was followed by those who selected more than one group, up by almost 231,000 from 2010. Asians grew by about 167,000 in Illinois, according to ABC 7 report.

The increase was partly because of the ease in immigration that began ten years ago with Obama. In 2021, Biden-Harris pushed for an open border policy as one of its significant accomplishments.

Chicagoland suburbs has been a favorite destination of Filipinx with plentiful Pinoy groceries and restaurants.


Asian population in the USA has been increasing steadily while the Latinx represents more than 50% of immigrants since the 1900s. Filipino immigrants in the USA will reach the 4.5 million mark in 2024.
