I'm new to this forum and I hope this topic is appropriate.

I just wanted to know if there's any data out there on which areas of LA County and Orange County people are moving in to?

Or even if you don't have hard data, maybe you could just chime in with which areas you think people are moving in to.

This is an older article but is touches on some of the migration patterns you are asking about:

Here's the google search I used to get to it. Perhaps you can chase down some of these links:

I don't have any info, but I can tell you the nice communities in my area(SE LA County/West OC) are doing well. Typically I think you can look to school closures as one way of measuring where people are fleeing from, and there hasn't been much of that in this area(infact, many of the schools are overcrowded and filled with portable classroom units). The only city I've seen any potential closures in was Cypress, and I know that some of the schools on the closure list are staying open at this point after a recent school district meeting. And of course, some of the problems could be from budget issues rather than lack of children in today's California

SCAG | Southern California Association of Governments

The So. California Association of Governments is a regional planning organization with studies and data that may answer your question.

I would add a few observations: LA County continues to grow...although at a much more moderate pace than in decades past.

Much of the "growth" can only occur where new housing is allowed to be built. And the fact is many established areas do NOT want to see additional housing (and the traffic associated with it) in their neighborhooods. So they elect mayors and city councils that make it very difficult to build new housing.

That said, we are seeing SOME areas actually ENCOURAGE more development of housing. This is the CASE in downtown LA where the population has EXPLODED over the last 10 years...at a much faster rate than LA County as a whole. Of course, there were so few residents to begin with that downtown LA was "overdue" for this explosion. Downtown is one of the few neighborhoods in Los Angeles where residents encourage and get excited to see new developments come in..be it new housing, retail or whatever. In a short ten years the residential population in downtown went from about 10,000 to approx. 40,000 in 2010. And even in this down economy new residential projects are opening up in downtown and people are moving in......
