The Asian population of the United States grew faster than any other racial or ethnic group in the last decade, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report.

The number of Americans identifying themselves as Asian alone or in combination with another race surged 45.6% from 11.9 million in 2000 to 17.3 million in 2010, driven mainly by international migration, census officials said Wednesday. The overall U.S. population grew 9.7% during that period, to 308.7 million. (Growth for the Latino population was 43% during the decade, with much slower growth for African Americans, 15%, and whites, 7%.)
