Latinifornia

The US Census released the California population data from the 2010 Census today. Here are some of the more interesting figures:

  • California’s total population is 37,253,957
  • About 37.6% of those people are Latino (14,013,719)
  • Some 4.8 million Californians (13%) are Asian

Non-Hispanic whites have dropped to about 40% of the total state population. This means that within the next decade, with natural reproduction and death rates what they are, California will become a Latino majority state.
