Which cities have the most Chinese people, outside of China? Got any numbers/estimates?

thank you!

ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: Wikipedia’s article on Overseas Chinese has a population chart by country, not by city. Singapore is sort of both, and they list 3.4 million, which might be the most. Since some of the other southeast Asian nations have high numbers, I assume cities such as Jakarta, Medan, Kuala Lumpur, and Rangoon would be in the running.

In the USA, according to the 2000 Census, the Metro areas (not individual incorporated cities) with the most persons of Chinese ethnicity are New York, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, and Los Angeles, all in the ballpark of half a million.

You may want to do a literature search in one of the databases the library subscribes to or else contact the Chinese Studies librarian in the library’s International and Area studies Department.
