"According to the 1990 U.S. Census, there were 2,794,130 Americans of East Asian descent...

Given the small percentages, these figures were, of course, subject to considerable variation from sampling error.

 Asian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There can be no doubt that Turkish, Semites (Arabs, Syrians, Bedouins, Israelis, etc.) Uzbekistanis, and the indigenous peoples of Siberia, and so on, are all "Asians" in the continental sense, but they are not considered a part of the races of people named "Asian" for the purpose of the U.S. Census.
When "Asian" is used as a shorthand for "East Asian" or "South Asian", Russians of course are usually not included; one of the exceptions are Kalmyks, the only Buddhist Asians living in the East Europe in the republic of Kalmykia, which is the subject of the Russian Federation.
People have different conceptions of who an Asian is and thus the term is not a very precise or accurate one, except in the case of "South Asian" where the partition of British India made "Indian" a politically incorrect reference to Pakistani and Bangladeshi people.

 Asian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The US Census's definition of "Asian" does not, however include Arabs, or other peoples living in the Near East or Middle East.
In the United Kingdom and Anglophone Africa, the term "Asian", though it can be used to refer to the continent of Asia as a whole, is more usually associated specifically with people and cultures whose origin lies in South Asia: that is, modern-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka (see British Asian).
Some believe that the idea that "Asians" form a coherent cultural group is outmoded and therefore the term should be replaced by the use of separate terms for each Asian cultural or geographical group.

Earlier census data had found that, over the last 20 years, the number of marriages between blacks and whites has more than quadrupled (white-Hispanic and white-Asian marriages are even more common).
Indeed, the multi-race option was added to the census form in large part because of pressure from the increasing number of those who are either in multi-race marriages or are the product of them.
USA Today this week, also reporting on census data (collected in a March 2000 survey), pointed out that “wide differences exist for subgroups within the Hispanic population” in level of education.
