Determining the specific Palestinian population in U.S. cities is challenging because U.S. census data often categorizes individuals from the Middle East under the broader category of “Arab” without distinguishing between nationalities like Palestinian, Lebanese, Syrian, etc.

However, based on their research, the data aggregation website Zip Atlas gathered the top 15 cities with the largest Palestinian communities in the United States. Here’s what they found about where Palestinian residents have chosen to call home.
