(a) Sakshi Venkatraman, Indian Americans, After passing Chinese in US population, Are Awakening to Their Political Power. Indian Americans say they cannot be ignored this election cycle and are more sure than ever of what they want from their leaders. Experts say they could help turn the tide in 2024. NBC News, May 8, 2024.

third paragraph: "Those who identified as 'Indian-alone' — or 100% Indian — on the 2020 US Census number 4.4 million, overtaking the 'Chinese-alone' population, which was previously the highest. When multiracial Americans are considered, Chinese is still the largest Asian group in the country, but the milestone pointed to how the Indian population has rocketed over the last decade.

(b) Venkatraman helpfully supplied a hyperlink to
Brittany Rico, Joyce Key Hahn and Cody Spence, Chinese, Except Taiwanese, Was the Largest Asian Alone or in Any Combination Group; Nepalese Population Grew Fastest. United Strates Cemsus Bureau, Sept 21, 2023.

"Chinese, Except Taiwanese"?  Anyone familiar with census (not just 2020 but those before) knows census form provided (about five) choices for Chinese etc (but not Taiwanese), then there is other with an empty box for one to fill it in. I select "other" and filled it in with handwritten "Taiwanese. But there are Taiwanese who would not bother and ticked "Chinese" (in part because it is more convenient to check).

(a) Because it is 2020 census data (which anyone in the United States can participate in -- nobody forces you to or not to), it (data) includes illegal aliens.
(b) Indians are now third-largest group of undocumented immigrants in the United States. See
