Nevada’s Asian-American population grows

USA Today reports in a story datelined from Las Vegas that Nevada is among the Mountain West states that are attracting more Asians.

"This decade, the Asian population has grown at a faster rate than that of the Hispanic population in 14 states — including Nevada, Arizona and Texas — as well as Washington, D.C.," writes USA Today.

The story also says "Wearied by the same crushing home prices, poor schools, jammed freeways and persistent crime that have sent millions of other Californians packing, Asian Americans are moving to spots in the West they hope will produce better lifestyles — namely Las Vegas and Phoenix."
