^ Exactly some forumers don't understand that there's actually life out of SSC. Those who are always here it's great that you keep the conversations going for those of us who check in every so often....

Starting this Monday Ferney goes back to work full time. Meaning I would hardly be here, as it is I'm hardly here now. Good thing is I would actually have pix of Grand Ave, Bunker Hill and a few walking distance sites around Downtown. For your viewing enjoyment...

LA Population Hits 4 Million

By Harrison Sheppard, Staff Writer
May 1, 2008

The population of Los Angeles has passed 4 million for the first time, state officials announced this morning.
The city's population grew by 1.2 percent last year, to reach 4,045,873 residents as of Jan. 1, 2008, according to the state Department of Finance.

The new figures represent a backtracking from an announcement last year that L.A. had actually passed that mark in January 2007. State officials now say they have revised those earlier figures, and the mark wasn't hit until later in the year.

The state as a whole grew last year by 1.3 percent to 38,049,462 people.

State demographic experts said California's population has been growing more slowly this decade, a trend which is driven in part by the high cost of housing. Even though the rate of immigration remains steady, a greater number of Californians have been leaving for cheaper states. But the recent economic downturn and housing slump hasn't made that trend any worse.

"Right now (the economy) doesn't seem to be having a whole lot of effect per se on population growth," said Mary Heim, chief of the demographic unit in the Department of Finance.

"We estimate there have been for the last couple of years more Californians leaving than coming from other states. That doesn't count immigration - that is just domestic migration. We think that is continuing, but it hasn't accelerated at this point in time."

Four Million Strong... And Growing

By Rich Alossi
May 1, 2008

LA's population has hit 4 million--and this time it's for reals. Last year California's Department of Finance released an estimate of 4,018,080 residents, though the US Census Bureau begged to differ. This year's revised final tally? 4,045,873... 874... 875...

I would encourage LA to challenge the most recent Census figure.

^ Population growth rates always fluctuate. Certainly, LA will become a more appealing place to relocate to in the future. We'll see.

I do love this city, but if so many US citizens move out, it will just be an immigrant city like most border towns. And, most border towns are not nice cities. If all these Hispanics keep coming over, LA will turn into a ghetto surrounded by nice areas on the coast, SaMo Mnts. foothills, outer ring of SFV, and west SGV. Who knows, those might become ghetto as well.

^ The gentrification of Downtown, Hollywood, and Westlake/Koreatown will bring more wealthy, white-collar workers to central LA.

Oh yeah, that's true. But CA is now majority Hispanic. I guess the majority are probably in NorCal, Central Valley, or in farming communities. I would like to see the figures from LA, SD, and SF.

California IS majority Hispanic...and yet, it's the 10th largest economy in the world. Being of a particular nationality has nothing to do with what YOU consider to be "ghetto."

Wow... in the span of a year, around 27,000 individuals made their home in L.A... and that's just the city. What about the county estimates? I'm sure we gotta be around 10 million now, or if we're not there yet we're certainly pushing it.

And the growth rate will certainly increase once 1) we get everything in DTLA off the ground, 2) once the real estate market turns into a buyer's market once again and 3) we get our transit issues worked out. After that, you can count on L.A. seeing the growth increase that it saw back in the 60's and the 80's.

It's so strange,I thought L.A passed the 4 million mark a year or two ago????

I also noticed that California passed the 38 million mark earlier than expected....Well like I said in a previous post,it's time to start building upwards.

I honestly don't rely on the U.S Census Bureau for California's Population estimates anymore,but I trust our in-state sources such as the California Finance Department which is much more accurate.

I wonder what number the Census Bureau has us at. Surely, it's still in the 3 million's.
