Asians are the fastest growing racial group according to a recent report released by the U.S. Census Bureau analyzing 2000 and 2010 census figures.
For those following the nation's changing demographics that may sound surprising because we've also been hearing that Hispanics are the "fastest growing minority group."
The difference between the two groups can be explained in how the Census Bureau defines people of Hispanic origin. In 2010,new instructions were listed before questions on Hispanic, Latino or Spanish origin indicating that "Hispanic origins are not races."
