Its getting really close.

California Racial Breakdown, 2010
Non-Hispanic White 14,956,253 40.1%
Hispanic 14,013,719 37.6%
Asian 4,775,070 12.8%
Black 2,163,804 5.8%
Two or More Races 968,696 2.6%
American Indian 162,250 0.4%
Native Hawaiian/ Pac. Islander 128,577 0.3%
Some other Race 85,587 0.2%

And I think by 2020, Native Hawaiians/Pac Islanders(woot) will surpass American Indians in CA.

On March 31st so the Census Bureau can go out with a bang.

Seriously though, it hasn't been announced yet.

I say 1.498M to 1.5M even. Just a little less than the 2000 pop.

the 2008 metro estimate was 5.8M, I would say the census metro estimate would be 80K more plus 30K for for Penn being short changed by 70M people. so my take on the metro would be 5.89M to 5.91M

we will see soon enough - the 2009 estimate was at 1.54 for Philly but think like other cities will come in below that number.

On metro though the early 2010 was at 6.0 so with another 30k from the PA undercount and what was already picked up in Jersey which was also revised higher I think it will be well over 6, maybe closer to 6.05

the 2009 estimate was the adjustment after the successful 2008 challenge where Philly was previously listed at 1.45M.

Also the metro was estimated 6.01 in late 2010 not early 2010. Both Houston and Philly were estimated to cross 6M last summer. I highly doubt that either did until fall

Wasn't the State of PA overcounted by about 100K also? I wonder which parts of the state those came from (I'm thinking the cities like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia).

I don't know about Pittsburgh, but more than likely Philly.

I also don't think it was an over count.

I think the estimates have just been too strongly in favor of the center of the state losing population rather than the major cities gaining less than they actually gained. I predicted that the central counties pops will go back to early 2000's pops rather than lower pops and that the ends (Philly and Pitts) won't change much
