  • Somerset area in Bellevue: more than 38% of the population is Asian.
  • Crossroads residents are 64% minority.
  • 2009 city survey, 30% of Bellevue’s population was foreign-born. Among those, 42.9%, or more than 16,000, entered the U.S. in 2000 or later.
  • 68% of Asians who are employed in Bellevue work in management or professional occupations, compared with 60% of the employed whites and 21% of the employed Hispanics.
  • Redmond: about 39% of the city’s residents are minorities, up from 24% 10 years ago.

  • The quality of the schools is a draw for Eastside neighborhoods. The June 2010, U.S. News & World Report ranked Bellevue School District’s International School 10th in the nation and Newport and Bellevue high schools were within the top 100. And Newsweek ranked five schools in Bellevue within its top 100.
  • The growth in the Eastside Asian population also is reflected in stores. The Bellevue Square Macy’s, for example, has added very small sizes — zeros and twos — and gotten rid of its big and tall men’s section, to accommodate more shorter, thinner shoppers, Betsy Nelson, Macy’s spokeswoman said.
