Asian Hispanic and Latino Americans are Hispanic and Latino Americans having Asian ancestry and for those Hispanics who consider themselves or were officially classified by the United States Census Bureau, Office of Management and Budget, and other U.S. government agencies as Asian Americans.

Hispanicity, which is independent of race, is the only ethnic category, as opposed to racial category, which is officially unified by the U.S. Census Bureau. The distinction made by government agencies for those within the population of any official race category, including "Asian American", is between those who report Hispanic or Latino ethnic backgrounds and all others who do not. In the case of Asian Americans, these two groups are respectively termed Asian Hispanics and non-Hispanic Asian Americans, the former being those who say Asian ancestry from Spanish-speaking Latin America, and the latter consisting of an ethnically diverse collection of all others who are classified as Asian Americans that do not report Hispanic ethnic backgrounds.

Population

In the 2000 US Census, 119,829 Hispanic or Latino Americans identified as being of Asian race alone.[3] In 2006, the Census Bureau's American Community Survey estimated them at 154,694,[4] while its Population Estimates, which are official, put them at 277,704.[5] In the 2010 Census, there were 598,146 Asian Hispanic or Latino Americans, including those who are multiracial in origin.[6]

Filipino Americans, often have Spanish surnames from the Alphabetical Catalog of Surnames, due to an 1849 decree.[7][8]
