The 2010 census results have been out for 9 days already, and if you don't know what came out you should go check. As you could see, city population tallies were very suprising, and Los Angeles was kind of slow-growing , thank God that the pollution levels there rose only slightly , since I do get headaches from all that smog when I enter the city.

Here is an excerpt from the Census Bureau:

Data for California show that the five most populous incorporated places and their 2010 Census counts are Los Angeles, 3,792,621; San Diego, 1,307,402; San Jose, 945,942; San Francisco, 805,235; and Fresno, 494,665. Los Angeles grew by 2.6 percent since the 2000 Census. San Diego grew by 6.9 percent, San Jose grew by 5.7 percent, San Francisco grew by 3.7 percent, and Fresno grew by 15.7 percent.

The largest county is Los Angeles, with a population of 9,818,605. Its population grew by 3.1 percent since 2000. The other counties in the top five include San Diego, with a population of 3,095,313 (increase of 10.0 percent); Orange, 3,010,232 (increase of 5.8 percent); Riverside, 2,189,641 (increase of 41.7 percent); and San Bernardino, 2,035,210 (increase of 19.1 percent).

So only a 2.9% growth in LA; slowly reaching the 3,800,000 mark; while San Diego grew 6.9% while up above the 1,300,000 mark; and San Jose was bumped 5.7%, staying under the 1 million mark.

This will be my last population post in quite a while, say a month or so. (You population thread haters of me, just enjoy the month).

Usually what has happened is the Department of Finance adjusts its estimates to match the Deciannual Census and then will resume with its own independent estimates the following year.

Its a shame that the state doesnt have the will to raise hell about the Census.

Hehe, MontClair18. Thanks for the post . BTW, I stopped at the Human Population Calculator just for the heck of it, and yeah, it showed a lot. I got those population predictions for the next 10 years with the same growth rate. It's fun trying to work it there, and here is what I got:

This one is for Los Angeles, California, United States (with a base of 3,792,621)

2011 - 3,803,619
2012 - 3,814,650
2013 - 3,825,712
2014 - 3,836,807
2015 - 3,847,933
2016 - 3,859,092
2017 - 3,870,284
2018 - 3,881,508
2019 - 3,892,764
2020 - 3,904,053

This one is for San Diego, California, United States (with a base of 1,307,402)

2011 - 1,316,423
2012 - 1,325,506
2013 - 1,334,652
2014 - 1,343,861
2015 - 1,353,134
2016 - 1,362,470
2017 - 1,371,871
2018 - 1,381,337
2019 - 1,390,868
2020 - 1,400,465

I'll look up the other ones later. Besides, here is the calculator: Human Population Calculator

Every once in a while, the Dems in Congress will make a pitch for applying a more accurate, scientific methodology to the US Census, rather than attempt a head count. But the GOP shoots them down every time, because, obviously, most of the inaccuracies impact lage cities, which are generally Dem strongholds.

More people= more representation=more cash and influence, hence, it behooves the GOP to stick with the inaccurate, antiquated (but beneficial to them) "head count".

Besides, Republicans don't do "science"

2010 population for Los Angeles is just below 3,800,000. And you are raising some high expectations for the city. What is that, population 6,600,000 by the end of this decade? Don't forget: Los Angeles has a 2.9% growth, and that would equal 0.0029 in decimal, not 0.029.

San Diego's 2011 population will top 1,315,000 (at the same rate) at least. A seven percent growth is very decent, but I expect that the population will hit 1,400,000 by 2020 if it grew by the same rate. But since the housing market in San Diego is getting hot, then the city population also will enter its Golden Age. That means I'm expecting a population topping 1,325,000.

San Jose has a population now of at least 950,000. I don't know about the small growth rate of San Jose, but I think that San Jose has to join the 1 million club by the end of this decade. I'm suprised San Jose is more popular than San Francisco in residents. Maybe because San Francisco has only 40 square miles (and a heck load of density), and San Jose has a heck load of more area.
