Chechen Americans are Americans of Chechen descent. Chechen people have origins from Chechnya, a federal subject of Russia.

Demographics

They are a small minority group with a population numbering only several hundred, as of 2013. Exact statistics are difficult to obtain because Chechens are categorized as Russians in asylee reports. The most significant Chechen communities are in the Boston, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles areas.[2]
