City Of L.A. Added 42,000 People In 2016
BY OREN PELEG IN NEWS ON MAY 1, 2017 12:20 PM

The California Department of Finance has released its annual state population report. The Golden State added 335,000 people in 2016, bringing our total population, as of January 1, 2017, to 39,524,000. The department projects that the state will cross the 40 million threshold "sometime in 2018," Bill Schooling, chief of the Demographic Research Unit at the department, told LAist.

How did Los Angeles fare? California's largest city added about 42,000 people (a 1.1 percent gain for the year), bringing our population to 4,041,707 on January 1.

Southern California also listed five of the 10 fastest growing cities with populations of 30,000 or more. Irvine's population grew by 3.9% (to 267,086) from January 1, 2016, to January 1, 2017. Beaumont grew by 3% during the same period. As did Vista, Monrovia, and Santa Clarita.

"Irvine saw big growth due to [single and multi-family] housing construction," Schooling continued. "The Inland Empire, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, saw a return to growth as well."

Confirms general narrative of native borns being priced out and replacement by Asian immigrants.

A colossal failure of housing policy.

Steady growth. Much more manageable than what we had in the 60's, 70's and 80's

Not sure what the discrepancy means. The census states that the MSA only gained 41,619 from 2015-2016. Maybe some locales/municipalities are in decline, while within the city limits absorbs more people?

With one notable exception — Menlo Park — the Bay Area cities that grew the most last year were suburbs where housing tends to be more plentiful and more affordable, a trend that helps to explain the perennially jammed roads and freeways. East Bay cities such as Dublin, Brentwood and Hercules; Rio Vista in Solano County; and Gilroy in southernmost Santa Clara County were among the cities with the greatest growth in 2016.

I'd wait for the census city estimates which release later this month.
