Tracking the roots of Indian diaspora in USA

Indian Americans are the second-largest immigrant group in the United States (after the Mexicans). As the number of Indian-origin residents in the United States has swelled north of 4 million, the community’s diversity has also grown. According to the India American Attitudes Survey 2020 by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Gujarati diaspora leads with 14 percent followed by 12 percent from Maharashtra and 10 percent hailing from Andhra Pradesh. Tamil diaspora is 9 percent of the total while Punjabis are around 8 percent. Rajasthan has contributed a mere 1.4 percent of the Indian immigrants in the USA.
