Hey, guys, it has been more than 3 months without a population thread, and now I am back because of Southern California gets 200,000 newbies in 2 years. Now we have about 22,680,010 people in So-Cal. That a good improvement, eh? I think we would have a little more, since the weather is great here, and in the Midwest heat should bear for at least a vacation.

In 2009, So-Cal had a population of about 22,426,000, and it grew by more than 240,000 people - a city the size of Chula Vista, Calif. (which is in Southern California, about 7 miles south of San Diego), and I think it will grow to near to 23,000,000.

So-Cal is the most populated megalopolis out there by density, since there are about 22.5 million people within 10 counties, even though it is surpassed by 5 more megalopolises. New York's metro is a metropolitan area, and it does not classify much.

Southern Calif has much more to come, but for this weekend, I think they have had enough after the L.A.'s "Carmegaddon", which is of course the 405 closure, but that's just going to continue for the next 20 hours, and they are done.

San Diego had enough, with that 1,311,000 people as of 2011 from the DOF. That's a lot, but compare it to New York, it is nothing. I guess it will come up to 1.4 mil in about 10 years. It's a long time from now, but I guess it's acceptable.

At least no one here is always so f***'ed up about the weather, you know.

I thought these numbers are updated via 10 year census?

SoCal's Population will always grow no matter what the doomsday sayer/haters wanna believe.

California is still a desirable place and their is still lots more room for growth.

I wouldn't consider .5% growth a year exactly gangbusters. Doesn't the U.S. population as a whole grow at at least that rate?
