California population growth has slowed dramatically, study shows
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- California's population isn't growing as fast as it used to. A new study by the University of Southern California shows growth has slowed dramatically in recent years, largely because of the recession and reduced immigration.
Researchers estimate the state's population will reach 50 million by 2046. That's 14 years later than projected in earlier studies.
The study also found that native Californians represent an ever-growing majority of the state's population. In 2010, more than 90 percent of children under 10 were native Californians. By 2030, 57.2 percent of adults aged 35 to 44 will be native Californians, up from 38.5 percent in 2010, the report found.
