March 13, Washington D.C.: Indian-Americans crossed the milestone of 3 million in the US. A survey conducted by an NGO group the Indian-American population in the U.S grew 68 per cent over the 2000-2010 decade from 1.9 million to 3.19 million.
Indian Americans were the third largest Asian-American group in the U.S after Chinese-Americans (3.79 million) and Filipino-Americans (3.42 million) while growing at a faster rate than the others.
Commenting on this development, USINPAC’s Chairman Sanjay Puri said, “Indian-Americans continue to be attracted to the United States not only for economic opportunities but also for the ability to innovate and participate in the largest multi-ethnic democratic arena that is the United States of America.
