According to estimates by the California Department of Finance, California's population grew by 7.3% (or 2.7 million) from 2010 to the end of 2019

https://www.ppic.org/publication/cal...01.5%20million.
Most of that growth is birth and foreign immigrants as more Citizens (adults) move out than move in. So the adult population may well be changing. This has been happening for years.


Even before COVID-19, California’s population growth had slowed considerably. Since 2015, the state has lost at least 100,000 more people than it gained each year from other U.S. states, including growing numbers of working class and Black residents. But California is still a top U.S. destination for people moving from other countries, plus affluent transplants from other states. From July 2018 to July 2019, California saw a net loss of 197,594 people to other states. https://calmatters.org/economy/2020/...ving-industry/

The informative above does not support the quote below and does not disprove my post at all.

It isn't total population, it is population relative to the rest of the country.

In a first, California poised to lose House seats

I understand how Congressional apportionment works.

I'm just telling you that this statement you had below is false.

Quibble if you like, but it was a reference back to this:

Quote:
Republicans took back three House seats from Democrats that were won in 2018. They could win one more seat in 2022, but it depends on how many seats CA loses from the 2020 census/reapportionment.
The understanding was that CA is losing House seats for the first time since becoming a state, because the state was losing population, relative to the rest of the country.

Nope.

Where are the babies? California sees slowest population growth since it started counting:
https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics...229910029.html

After decades of rapid growth, the number of immigrants has leveled off:

As jobs vanished, immigrants left California. The question is how many:

Why walk it back? It's true. It is not worth the money. Be honest and you will save people a lot of headache. If your life does not revolve around beach culture OC in not worth the money. You can have a lot more freedom and bang for your buck in Colorado or Texas.

Guess what? Worth is relative. I earned my dollars and I get to decide if I want to spend them to live in Orange County or some flyover state like Colorado or Texas.

I could buy multiple BMWs by the amount that my house has appreciated in value this year.

But ok. Waste your money living your life in some flyover dump.
