Demographics

Laos, Thailand and ChinaChanges in the 2010 Census provided an opportunity to further refine population statistics and more closely identify different ethnic groups. Fresno State researchers were also able to expand and refine the demographic picture of our students. Of the 2009 new student cohort at Fresno State, 288 or 7% of the undergraduate student population are Hmong, the majority whose families reside in Fresno County.
