By the turn of the century, it is likely that Asian America will have a population of over nine million a n d make u p four percent of the total population of the United States. This dramatic growth has also radically transformed the composi- tion of Asian America. Differential rates of immigration have changed the relative size of the various Asian nationality groups.
