Buttigieg, the moderate 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had 26.8% of state delegate equivalents, the data traditionally reported to determine the victor.
Sanders, 78, was ahead in the popular vote, which is not used to determine the delegates who will cast ballots at the Democratic National Convention in July. "They're not very representative, they're a small white state that is not like the rest of the country, the caucus itself is an undemocratic process and turn out- by all accounts - seems like it was pretty low".
The race remained too early to call, two days after the state hosted its first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses. "A campaign which started a year ago with four staff members, no name recognition, no money, just a big idea.has taken its place at the front of this race to replace the current president with a better vision for the future", Buttigieg said in televised remarks.
The mid-western state has now allocated the first of the 1,990 pledged delegates a candidate needs to win the overall 2020 Democratic primary.
Also Thursday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez called for a recanvass in Iowa.

Amiot (five-time Emmy and Golden Globe victor Alan Alda), there are dangers from the past that require the Ray Donovan of old". Ray Donovan starred multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight in his Golden Globe-winning role.
Many have now questioned whether the mishap is a metaphor for the wider discord within the Democrat party given the political differences of the candidates. Buttigieg's strong Iowa showing will also make him a factor here. But many of those campaigns are likely to hit a breaking point if the candidate doesn't perform well in the early-voting states.
But the former vice-president vowed: "I'm not going anywhere" and told an audience in New Hampshire he was counting on them for their support. Mr Bloomberg, 77, was absent from the caucuses but spent roughly US$10 million (S$13.7 million) on a Super Bowl advertisement, going head to head with Mr Trump at the event the night before the voting.
"New Hampshire is famous for thinking for itself", Buttigieg said at a campaign stop in Portsmouth.
Greg Valliere, chief USA policy strategist at AGF, joins BNN Bloomberg to weigh in on last night's Iowa Caucus tech debacle. Among voters 50 and over, Buttigieg leads with 27% support, followed by Sanders with 21%, Biden with 19% and Klobuchar and Warren with 11%. Bernie Sanders' campaign released their own data and showed Sanders with a heavy lead on his opponents before the official vote totals were released.
'Don't know anything about that but maybe Democrats should consider using an app of some kind next time, ' Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman for Trump's reelection campaign, wrote in a cheeky text message Wednesday. But she and other supporters were concerned when they heard that Sanders may have gotten the most votes but not the most delegates.
"Why don't we just go in the booth and vote?"
